A Momentary Flow

Updating Worldviews one World at a time

In a talk titled “Beyond Today”, Google’s CEO Larry Page infused Zeitgeist 2012 attendees with a healthy dose of optimism and a call to make ambitious bets, be better organized and work harder to accelerate technology and improve people’s lives. Donning a Google Glass prototype, he began his talk casually demoing the tech by saying, ”If you guys are going to take my picture, I’ll take your picture too.” Then with a voice command and the tap on the side of the frame, he shared it with everyone at Google. That simple action captured the flavor of his two-part talk, which highlighted Google’s current efforts and cast a vision for where Google is headed next, guided by a slogan he borrowed from a University of Michigan summer leadership course: “Have a healthy disregard for the impossible.” We’ve been painting a picture of a bright technological future here at Singularity Hub, and now Larry Page is here to bolster our argument.
