Google CEO: “Nothing Seriously Wrong With Me” (Though What’s Wrong Still Remains a Mystery)

In an internal email to staff, first reported by The Wall Street Journal, Google CEO Larry Page wrote that “there is nothing seriously wrong with me,” noting he would be in charge as usual.

Page missed a shareholders meeting last week and with the search giant saying he would not speak its upcoming Google I/O developers event this week or its next quarterly call in July, due to an unspecified issue with his voice.

Google has declined to give more information about the illness, despite what is likely to be increasing investor concern. But right now, Google shares have remained steady, even gaining slightly on Friday.
