SAN FRANCISCO — Larry Page and Sergey Brin, the Stanford graduate students who founded Google over two decades ago, are stepping down from executive roles at Google’s parent company, Alphabet, they announced...
Congrats on the move, Larry Page! Quick reminder: We do still expect you to testify before Congress. And changing your title while staying on the board and retaining effective control of it will not exempt you from accountability. https://t.co/Hr0w3Kz6zg
Actually not as big a deal as it seems. 1. @sundarpichai has had purview over the big dogs of the company @Google and @YouTube for a while 2. Larry and Sergey have been AWOL for a while 3. The pair still control it all via dual class stock. So same same, though congrats to Sundar https://t.co/v39SGnJnhU
