Regular readers of this blog (Hey Steve and Google!) know that I am truly a Google Friend and avidly follow any news of my favorite search engine.
Happily, I stumbled across an interview with Google’s CEO Eric Schmidt [parts two, three, and four]. I’ll admit that I was very skeptical back when Schmidt was hired. Coming from Novell, he seemed like the very last person to lead a rag-tag bunch of computer scientists at the Googleplex. He comes across very well in the interview and seems to really understand his and Google’s place in the wider Web.
In light of my earlier entry, I think the thing that most excited me was the reminder that the job-creation engine has moved into the small business market and that the “barrier to entry for a small business entrepreneur has dropped by an order of magnitude or more.”
