In his announcements this week, Google CEO Larry Page remarked:
“Almost every time we’ve done something crazy, we’ve made progress,” he said. “Not every time but a lot of the time. Now we’ve become kind of emboldened. I say we’re at 1% of what’s possible.”
This is Google. Think back to the world pre-Google. People who think this constitutes 1% are the kind of people who innovate the way Google does.
Google’s significant challenge is not in its maps and music categories but the challenge to companies and non-profits who create their own learning disabilities with beliefs other than the 1% perspective.
