Interview mit Googles CEO

Ein paar interessante Auszüge aus dem Interviews mit Googles CEO Eric Schmidt, das AlwaysOn geführt hat (via Heiko Hebig):

Über das Treffen von Entscheidungen bei Google:

"Virtually all of the strategic initiatives and product initiatives are either driven by the two founders or by very small innovative technical teams. We don’t have a traditional strategy process, planning process like you’d find in traditional technical companies."

Über den Kauf von Pyra:
"What we really bought was a team. With these little companies, the asset that you get is the knowledge in the people’s heads, and that’s what we care about. They will be enormously creative in the next few years."

Über die next big wave of human communication:
I believe that this notion of self-publishing, which is what Blogger and blogging are really about, is the next big wave of human communication. The last big wave was Web activity. Before that one it was e-mail. Instant messaging was an extension of e-mail, real-time e-mail.

The next step in general for information is the self-publishing part. If somebody takes the time to write something, having Google understand that is very important to that person.

Das Interview wird noch fortgeführt.
