Today though, my news is bittersweet: I have decided that the time
is right to “leave the Nest.” […]
Although this news may feel sudden to some, this transition has
been in progress since late last year and while I won’t be present
day to day at Nest, I’ll remain involved in my new capacity as an
advisor to Alphabet and Larry Page. This will give me the time and
flexibility to pursue new opportunities to create and disrupt
other industries — and to support others who want to do the same
— just as we’ve done at Nest. We should all be disrupters!
