Google CEO Shares Thoughts About Information Industry

In late May I mentioned that Google CEO, Eric Schmidt, would be giving a lecture at the University of Washington in Seattle. Today, I came across an archived copy of Schmidt’s presentation that’s viewable on the web.

The 58 minute lecture is titled, “Perspectives on the Information Industry,” and you’ll need either Windows Media Player or Quicktime to view it.

Here’s the blurb:

In this special colloquia, Dr. Eric Schmidt, chief executive officer of Google in Redwood City, California discusses the information industry and Google’s approach to innovation. Dr. Schmidt has a 25-year record of achievement as an Internet strategist, entrepreneur and developer of great technologies. Since taking the helm at Google, he has focused on building the corporate infrastructure needed to maintain Google’s rapid growth as a company and on ensuring that quality remains high while product development cycle times are kept to a minimum. Previously, Dr. Schmidt was chief executive and chairman of software maker Novell, and before that was chief technology officer at Sun Microsystems.
