It might interest you that shortly before Google went public in 2004, Larry, Sergey and CEO Eric Schmidt made a 20 year pact. According to an interview in Fortune
magazine, the trio says, "We agreed the month before we went public that we should work together for 20 years." If the promise is carried to fruition, Schmidt will be 69, Page 51, and Brin 50 before they're eligible to retire. Of course, none of this is legally binding. But isn't a gentleman's agreement more desirable in a world where "do no evil" is a fundamental axiom? Sure, dreamers.
