Page says in an interview with Vinod Khosla that people work too much and that technology could allow them to focus more on the things that make them happy:
If you really think about the things you need to make yourself happy — housing, security, opportunity for your kids … it’s not that hard for us to provide those things. The idea that everyone needs to work frantically to meet peoples’ needs is not true.
Arrington interviews Sun Microsystems co-founder Khosla at Startup Weekend about his view of the venture capital industry. Arrington:
You’re a badass dude in general…and if you don’t mind I’d like to spend most of our talk talking about how badass you are.
Khosla says he doesn’t identify as a VC:
I don’t have a very good view of venture capitalists, I refuse to call myself a venture capitalist…I think I’m a venture assistant out here to help entrepreneurs build companies. I’m not in the VC business because to me that means golf and parties.
