In case you missed it, Google CEO Sergey Brin publicly admitted last week that Google+ was “a mistake” for him — one month after the man he hired to run the social network, Vic Gundotra, left the company without explanation.
Brin told the audience at boutique Bay Area tech conference Recode that he was “kind of a weirdo” and that, “it was probably a mistake for me to be working on anything tangentially related to social to begin with.”
It runs in stark contrast to when Brin told the world how he came to love Google+, and admitted to taking a direct hand in its design at the October 2011 Web 2.0 conference.
FK – Google has suspended me from YouTube again, maybe permanently. Let’s hope Google continues to screw up to the point that it has to sell YouTube to a corporation that respects real freedom of speech.
