The technology magazine Wired is running this interview with the head of the Google Foundation, Larry Brilliant.

He discusses the foundation’s mandate (climate crisis, global public heath, and global poverty), his approach “I’m going to approach this the way a venture capitalist would – map out the industry to see what the gaps are“), his methodology, (“you fund an initiative, learn what works, and ask, “Will it scale?”), and what makes Google’s foundation different from Gates!

For those who want more, Treehugger.com has a good set of related links, and the Institute of International Studies at UC Berkeley carries a longer interview from April 2006 here.
