Pretty interesting. Page is taking over as CEO, while Eric Schmidt will (thankfully) remain with the company as Executive Chairman of the board. Sergey Brin will remain in his current role, focusing on special projects.

 

I'm a bit unclear on Schmidt's level of involvement in the new role, but as a GOOG shareholder, I'm happy he's at lease staying with the company, as I think he's one of the best CEO's/leaders out there

I'm not sure what to think about Page taking over Schmidt's job.  I thought Eric Schmidt was a very good CEO, although it's a little unclear how many strategic decisions were actually made by him, as opposed to by Larry and Sergei.

 

This is a pretty interesting contribution that Schmidt recently made to the Harvard Business Review regarding GOOG's agenda for 2011:

I am, of course, a GOOG shareholder.

Here are couple of articles that I thought were interesting explanations of what may be going on at Google and help explain the shakeup.  The UK paper, "The Guardian", has some good coverage of this.  You'll see some links in the first article to other coverage in the past.
