Google Founders Really Do Hate Evil

At the recent Web 2.0 Summit, a panel of former Google employees confirmed that Larry Page and Sergey Brin, Google’s founders, really do hate evil. The two executives did sometimes ask hard questions about deals with other companies if they sensed that the business leaders on the other side had an evil streak. And a product developer said the two were excellent at steering product teams to both think big and focus on not being evil at the same time. Sounds like that old “Don’t Be Evil” thing, about that being Google’s unofficial motto, is true, at least for its leaders.
