Google co-founder and chief Larry Page disclosed Tuesday that one of his vocal cords is partially paralyzed but that it will not stop him from running the Internet colossus.

“Thankfully, after some initial recovery I’m fully able to do all I need to at home and at work, though my voice is softer than before,” Page said in a post at Google+ social network. “And giving long monologues is more tedious for me and probably the audience.”
