  • “Before Google, I don’t think people put much effort into the ordering of results. You might get a couple of thousand results for a query. We saw that a thousand results weren’t necessarily as useful as 10 good ones.”
  • “It is ironic since whenever I have met with our elected officials they are invariably thoughtful, well-meaning people. And yet collectively 90% of their effort seems to be focused on how to stick it to the other party.”
