Larry Page to become CEO of Google

Eric Schmidt wrote today on the Official Google Blog that Larry Page will step up to become the chairman of Google from April 4th of 2011.

Here's a direct quote:

"Larry will now lead product development and technology strategy, his greatest strengths, and starting from April 4 he will take charge of our day-to-day operations as Google’s Chief Executive Officer. In this new role I know he will merge Google’s technology and business vision brilliantly. I am enormously proud of my last decade as CEO, and I am certain that the next 10 years under Larry will be even better! Larry, in my clear opinion, is ready to lead." 
Eric Schmidt has been the CEO for the last ten years now. He says in his blog post as how proud he is with Google's progress all this time and how happy he is that they are soon to take over the world.

All tech blogs around the web are buzzing with these news now. I want to see how Google does in the future now.
