Google at 10: Searching Its Own Soul
Miguel Helft for the New York Times describes that as Google recently turned 10 years old, some analysts and investors began to say the company was suffering from early signs of maturity. Mr. Schmidt, 53, spoke earlier this week from the company’s Mountain View, Calif., headquarters about his plans for managing Google in a downturn, the unraveling of an advertising partnership with Yahoo and his recent public endorsement of Barack Obama. Mr. Schmidt is also a member of Senator Obama’s transition economic advisory board. Article here.
