Back in the year 2000, Google was a humble search startup with a killer algorithm. For that the company was awarded a Webby for Technical Achievement. Larry Page and Sergey Brin are positively adorable in this interview with Sam Donaldson.

This meeting of minds is incredible: fresh-faced computer scientists in silver capes spewing unvarnished idealism at Sam Donaldson’s hair. Near the end, Sergey drops the bomb: “We’re working on profitability, and we’re working on it becoming a really good business success.” Later that year, Google released Adwords, and in 2001, Google turned its first profit.
