Google Co-Founder Speaks at U. Michigan Commencement

Google co-founder Lar­ry Page spoke at com­mence­ment this week­end at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Michi­gan. While the talk may not rise to the lev­el of Steve Jobs’ mas­ter­ful pre­sen­ta­tion at Stan­ford back in 2005 (the grad­u­a­tion speech that real­ly stays with me), it does have a nice per­son­al touch, par­tic­u­lar­ly at the begin­ning and end. And there are some pearls of wis­dom in between. Some­what curi­ous­ly, these speech­es seem to make more sense the old­er you get. They mean lit­tle at 22. More at 32. And even a bit more at 42. So how about this. New rule: Save the speech for the first mean­ing­ful reunion.
