Sergey Brin started a public blog with a powerful entry describing his mother’s diagnosis of Parkinson’s Disease, genetic analysis done by his wife’s company and his “markedly higher chance of developing Parkinson’s” in his lifetime.
Wow. A personal blog by one of the Google Guys would have been a must-read if he only talked about what he had for lunch.
He calls the blog “too.” The explainer:
“While Google is a play on googol, too is a play on the much smaller number -= two. It also means “in addition”, as this blog reflects my life outside of work.
I found out about it from TechCrunch (which has 33 comments on the post, while Sergey hasn’t approved any yet).
