WHAT AN ENTRANCE: Google co-founder Sergey Brin made a splashy entrance during a San Francisco conference.

THE REVEAL: After apologizing for disrupting a presentation, Brin said he had a time-sensitive matter to share with the audience. Moments later, he was immersed in a video chat with a skydiver that Google hired to jump out of a blimp to demonstrate futuristic, Internet-connected glasses.

WHERE'S PAGE: Google CEO Larry Page was absent, though that wasn't a surprise. Without providing any specifics about what caused the problem, Google Inc. said Page lost his voice and wouldn't be speaking.
