When Googled switched from an innovator to an advertiser... it started rolling down hill.

Current CEO is to blame.

Very sarcastic or you haven't been paying attention
Google Inc. has always been an advertiser
And the current CEO, invented google

Sort of like saying Steve Jobs didn't understand Apple computers.

The difference is Page in early 1998 wrote a paper decrying web advertisements and by incorporation in sept.1998 had already sold text ads "to support the service" which rapidly ramped the money machine we see today.
To think page and Brin didn't hope to monetize Google (at first thru academia) and haven't learned a bit about running a for profit business in the mean time is silly.
Evil is in the eye of the beholder.

Sounds like running a for-profit business means you learn to eat your own young.

Just like in politics.
