What Google’s Alphabet Really Spells for Silicon Valley: “I” Is for Innovation (And Also Irrelevance) | Re/code
Success breeds complacency. Complacency breeds failure. Only the paranoid survive. // To my mind, Google needn’t agonize about staying current to what the kids are up to quite as much as it seems. I know former Intel star Andy Grove once said that “only the paranoid survive,” but everyone from my vantage point seems have taken that to extremes. In fact, aging probably shouldn’t be so much a worry anywhere in Silicon Valley, given the most powerful companies are run by these same ever-aging execs, and most of the money funding the startups is controlled by another cadre of mature — almost always — former dudes. The olds run the place more than it looks. [...] To modify the famed “Godfather II” quote from Hyman Roth: This is the life you have chosen (to always change). Plato once noted that “nothing is real, because everything is always changing or becoming something else.” It’s an old saying, for sure, but it still works for me and maybe realizing that is not such a bad thing.

What Alphabet Means — The Information
Google’s growing ambitions were complicating an already complicated structure. [...] Google’s new structure—more than a year in the making—foreshadows more big acquisitions, some spinoffs and probably some more financial accountability. But can Google avoid a conglomerate tax? // &! Larry Page and ‘Retirement’ 2.0 - It is that the transition itself is so unusual, and yet a blueprint I believe other CEOs will try to follow. [ leverage what you have to reach out even further, when you can. then do it. enabled by dual-class stock structure despite haggles with Wall Street during earning calls of spending/losses of Google X and operational costs (lavish perks and compensation) and Wall Street thinking/feeling they get the shorter stick. Forget compounding (real world impact (people, planet, health, ...) >> Brin & Page's view, imagination, vision ...) if there is no % behind it. They are financiers, making money with money. ] // &!

Larry Page says he wants his fortune to go to Elon Musk. Alphabet is the next best thing. - Vox
Big minds with small ideas. = current Silicon Valley. Old Silicon Valley was counter culture. // you will fail anyway, why not fail with something audacious. really. no fluff. no padding. no spin. ... hard science. facts. global problems that affect us all. pollution, global warming, energy efficiency, waste, democracy, health (sick population), ... // don't fear failure.

Do You Trust Larry Page? - Stratechery by Ben Thompson
Given the fact that Alphabet née Google is the second most valuable enterprise in the world, it’s striking to consider Larry Page’s 2014 assessment of the company he co-founded with Sergey Brin: I think we’ve not succeeded as much as we’d like. [...] Even Google’s famously far-reaching mission statement, to “organise the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful”, is not big enough for what he now has in mind. The aim: to use the money that is spouting from its search advertising business to stake out positions in boom industries of the future, from biotech to robotics. [...] Googles non-social approach to advertising vs Facebook and everyone else ] [ ad world begins finally to shift away from TV & other legacy forms & FB/Google are main beneficiaries coming years of changing ad spend ] [ Page/Brin want 2 lead the org 2 a new frontier. A new Google Search. &they think they a near it, ie self-driving car, that they think the timing is right NOW ]

Google Becomes Alphabet and Names Sundar Pichai as CEO of Google | Re/code
Here are those chiefs who now sit under Alphabet: Tony Fadell, of Nest Labs, who Page is relying on to lead hardware efforts. Arthur Levinson, of Calico, the longevity research division. Craig Barratt, of Fiber, the high-speed broadband service. Dan Doctoroff, of Sidewalk Labs, the new company for cracking urban problems. Sergey Brin, now president of Alphabet and still overseer of X, which includes Project Loon, Wing (drones) and self-driving cars. David Lawee, who runs Google Capital. Bill Maris, who runs Google Ventures. // &! on.recode.net/1HD5H92 - After Alphabet Changes, Google Also Gets New Money Makers for Key Unit [...] Although it has a new name, Google is still Google — and so it is being very opaque about the details of the changes. [...] [ Google Inc. (Google Search and Co. divisions that make money) will have three new money making heads. ] &! on.recode.net/1JSDzoF - message to Wall Street
