Well, that may be, down the road, but I think strategically that’s a fundamental misreading of the company.
Sure, Google has plans. But I think they’re much more about doing cool stuff and seeing what sticks than generating some incredible master plan for world domination and following it to its conclusion.
I think that letting lots of smart cool people do lots of smart cool stuff (the famous one day a week at Google you work on some personal project) results in lots of smart cool projects.
And I think that we see these start to launch when their stock (literally) gets high enough within Google.
