There are a number of personal connections between the leadership of Time Warner and Google. First, Time Warner Director Frank J Caufield has a strong personal connection to former Vice President Al Gore, who is a Senior Advisor to Google. Caufield is a founding partner of the Menlo Park-based venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers (KPCB), and Mr Gore recently joined the firm as a Partner. Second, Time Warner Director James L Barksdale also has strong personal connections to Google Director and KPCB Partner John Doerr. His specific connection to Barksdale, however, is through their service as members of the Board of Directors for Liberty Media LLC, Home Corp, and Tellme Networks, which was purchased by Microsoft in May 2007.
