There’s no denying that Eric Schmidt has no blood connection with Google, however to make things clear, this visionary influential man has done amazing things for Google just a like a father would do for his child. What he was trying to do was a foolish pursuit of something unattainable for both Brin Page and to create Google, which is the leading search engine in the net field if they hadn’t counted with Schmidt’s assistance.

Both Larry Page and Sergey Brin used to fill their dorms in one of the most prestigious Universities in the USA with cheap desktops to produce one of the most important inventions humans have seen in this century.
1. Larry Page
Since the net is such a wide scenario, this man is the ruling name when it comes to technology prophets and innovative monopoly supporters. He is a privileged person who is part of the exclusive list of young billionaires on earth. Nowadays, he is Google’s Chief Executive Officer and the undeniable leader in Silicon Valley. When it comes to managing the company he doesn’t seem to be too skillful but he turns into a heavyweight when he needs to come up with extravagant ideas by making use of his brilliant programming skills. Remember what Google’s motto is, try your best and don’t think of the rest.
