Larry Page(佩奇)回复Vic Gundotra(维克.冈多特拉)离职博文:you built Google+ from nothing(2014年)

Vic — thank you for a tremendous almost eight years at Google.  You cut your teeth on our mobile apps and developer relations, turning our disparate efforts into something great.  When I first used turn-by-turn navigation, it blew me away.  And, walking onto the stage at I/O last year, it was amazing to see developers so excited about Google.  These were vintage Vic projects.  Then you built Google+ from nothing.  There are few people with the courage and ability to start something like that and I am very grateful for all your hard work and passion.  I really enjoy using Google+ on a daily basis, especially the auto awesome movies which I really love sharing with my family and friends.  Good luck with your next project after Google.  In the meantime we’ll continue working hard to build great new experiences for the ever increasing number of Google+ fans.

Last month, my wife’s uncle died in a tragic accident in LA when the bicycle he was using to get lunch was hit by a truck. At the memorial service his daughter relayed a very touching story. 

She said her dad (who was her best friend) called every day to talk. But instead of opening the call with the customary “How are you” or “What’s going on”, her dad always opened the conversation with “And then?” Her father viewed each conversation as a continuation of the last, and what pained her the most was that there were to be no more “and thens”. I cried. 

Since then I’ve thought a lot about how similar this is to our life’s endeavors. We pour our heart and soul into our work and it becomes something we love and cherish. But even the challenges we work on today will one day become “and thens” as we move on to the next. 

Today I’m announcing my departure from Google after almost 8 years.

I have been incredibly fortunate to work with the amazing people of Google. I don’t believe there is a more talented and passionate collection of people anywhere else. And I’m overwhelmed when I think about the leadership of Larry Page and what he empowered me to do while at Google. From starting Google I/O, to being responsible for all mobile applications, to creating Google+, none of this would have happened without Larry’s encouragement and support.

I’m also forever in debt to the Google+ team. This is a group of people who built social at Google against the skepticism of so many. The growth of active users is staggering, and speaks to the work of this team. But it doesn’t tell you what kind of people they are. They are invincible dreamers. I love them. And I will miss them dearly.

Finally, thank you to all those who I’ve met on Google+. The community here has been so supportive that I don’t even know how to say thank you. You all make Google+. Without you, this social network wouldn’t exist. Your support for Google+, and for me personally is something I will never forget. 

But, now is the time for a new journey. A continuation. An “and then”. I am excited about what’s next. But this isn’t the day to talk about that. This is a day to celebrate the past 8 years. To cry. And smile. And to look forward to the journey yet to come.

And then….

李开复离职信:再见,谷歌(2009年)

李开复

离职时间:2009年9月4日
离职职务:谷歌全球副总裁、大中华区总裁

  时光荏苒,时光匆匆走过了一个四年,回望过去四年我在谷歌的职业生涯,所有的快乐、成就以及曾经面对的困难与挫折,所有的这一切如同一部电影在我的脑海里不断地闪过。在这离别之际,我不禁百感交集。在这四年时光里,谷歌中国从一个很小的雏形一直慢慢发展壮大,一直到今天,它成为了一家平稳,成熟,走上轨道的公司。

  在整整四年的时光里,我努力地把Google“平等、创新、快乐、无畏”的精神带到中国。这个过程并非一帆风顺,但是我们坚持着自己的信念与价值观,保持着超强的耐心精耕细作。

  我们压抑着做更酷、更炫的产品的欲望,努力耕耘最佳中文搜索。今天,谷歌中国的搜索质量已堪称最精确、最完整、最即时。优化中文搜索后,我们又开启了数十个产品,让谷歌中国的版图渐渐清晰。其中谷歌地图、谷歌手机地图、谷歌手机搜索、谷歌翻译都已经达到中国第一。另外,音乐搜索的推出,可以让网民首次享受到正版免费的音乐,创立了全球音乐下载的崭新模式。

  特别令我难忘的是我们热爱中国的员工面临雪灾、地震、风灾做出的及时产品和贡献,证实了谷歌中国人爱谷歌也爱中国,证实了谷歌中国人既能创新又有爱心。

  当我随意走进咖啡馆,看到年轻人在用谷歌的整合搜索查询信息,用地图查看实时交通流量,在iGoogle上挑选自己喜欢的“皮肤”(计算机界面),或者在用谷歌音乐听正版歌曲时,我都会露出发自内心的微笑。

  谷歌是一个伟大又可爱的公司,我非常感谢有这么一个千载难逢的机会,来从无到有地打造谷歌中国。在谷歌,我学到太多太多,无论是互联网技术、创新模式、价值观。

  对于谷歌,我现在已经没有遗憾,但我的人生还有一个缺憾没有实现,我想去弥补它。在过去的20年,我有幸在乔布斯、盖茨、施密特等身边学习成长,我有幸在PC时代历经苹果微软,我有幸在互联网时代历经谷歌,我有幸看到三个世界一流的公司的成长成功,我有幸在美国硅谷和中国的中关村崛起时,在这两个地方做过最有创意的工作。我拥有更多的是在科技领域的知识,更了解是企业成功的秘笈。这些职业经验才是我最有价值的资产,我非常希望能够把这些资产传授给中国青年。

   我的下一步就是和中国青年人一起打造新奇的技术奇迹,我想用自己的主动性做一个掌控全局的工作。我已经到了这个人生阶段,再不去做,我真的很怕来不及了。

  所以,尽管加州的山景城再次向我伸出了橄榄枝,希望我再续约四年,但是我却在此刻做出了发自内心的选择,我希望帮助年轻人圆梦的同时也圆自己的创业梦想。

  这个周末,我终于能够从业务发展、战略策划、离职宣布、工作交接中松一口气。这个周末,我会把我的思路理顺。下周,我会和大家分享的我的“从心选择”计划。

  每当我想到我将迈出的一步,我就会想起苹果创始人乔布斯的名言:

  “最重要的,拥有跟随内心与直觉的勇气,你的内心与直觉多少已经知道你真正想要成为什么样的人。任何其它事物都是次要的。”

Kai-Fu..this is a big surprise to me and I’m sorry to hear of your decision. You have made an exceptional contribution to us and you know the impact you have had on China and our global operations.

Lets talk about your next plans and maybe we can keep you involved in a way that makes sense to you

In any case thank you SO much for what you have don.. Eric

开复:

  我对此非常惊讶。听说了你的决定,我感到非常难受。你为我们作出了卓越的贡献,你非常了解你对中国和全球业务运营的影响。我们探讨一下下一步的打算,或许通过一种方式可以让你继续参与其中。

  无论如何,非常感谢你所做的一切。

  埃里克
