According to Google Chairman Eric Schmidt, the mystery throat ailment that silenced Google CEO Larry Page
and kept him out of Google I/O has just about run its course. According to the Wall Street Journal, Schmidt spoke with reporters at a fireside chat with media in Sun Valley, Idaho last Thursday. Schmidt told the reporters that Page seems fine. Schmidt said that during the worse of his illness, Page was still running the company via emails and other forms of written communications.
Last month, Schmidt had warned shareholders that an ailment would prevent the 39 year old Page from attending the Google I/O developer conference and the third quarter conference call
on July 19th. Now that Page has apparently regained his strength if not his speaking ability, it is unclear if the CEO will attend this Thursday's call with analysts. He was able to speak softly during a meeting last Monday
at Google HQ noted Schmidt.
