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.
