This week John Batelle and Tim O’Reilly had a chance to sit down and talk to a couple of the ‘big names’ in the online industry. One of them was Eric Schmidt. And they had the chance to talk to him for 45 minutes. The full interview was below.
Off course we all were looking for that one weird quote he was bound to be making. At one point it looked it was going to be “But forget search” which he said when they talked about Android, but he quickly added: “In the new world you sort of have to label jokes, that was a joke”. So you pick the quote from this one ;- ).
He even talked about talent and the one guy who got fired over leaking the raise.
