In case you missed it, John points out that Google cofounder Sergey Brin made a surprise appearance at his Web 2.0 conference last week. Sergey Brin: No office suite for now at ZDNet has coverage of Brin saying Google has no plans to do an office suite. But then again, he also talks about plans to make working with documents to be much easier, so we'll see if "no office suite" means "no software-based office suite."
Asked if there was anything Google wouldn't go into, he didn't really seem to answer, instead saying Google's success has "nothing to do with what an executive said was a good idea."
Sergey Brin unplugged at Web 2.0 has additional comments from Brin on being lucky as a start-up, focusing on giving people access to content done by others rather than producing original content and more.
