Thinking big: Larry Page talks moon shots

Thinking big: Larry Page talks moon shots

Whether it’s creating self-driving cars or translating the web into 64 languages, we love big bets. Our company culture encourages experimentation and the free flow of ideas. This perspective is not limited to our engineering teams and technical roles, but extends to all Googlers who share a desire to challenge what’s possible.

In an interview with Wired magazine, Larry Page discusses the company’s pursuit of innovation. Since it’s founding, Google has encouraged people to think big and aim for breakthroughs instead of incremental improvements. Larry also stresses his desire to do things that have never been done like self-driving cars and Google Glass—both of which are becoming reality, thanks to Google [x], our laboratory for moonshots.

Read the full interview to get the Google co-founder’s take on progress and innovation in the tech industry, what Larry and Sergey originally hoped Google would become when they started the company, and how the culture of thinking big has led to innovations in email, social, mobile and more.
