Eric Schimdt at Web 2.0 - No Decision on Performics, Yet

By Li Evans

John Battelle interviewed Eric Schmidt, CEO of Google, at the Web 2.0 conference.  The video is now up on Google (and embedded below).  It's an interesting interview, John, as always is a very entertaining interviewer and doesn't pull any punches.

From asking if Google's Docs & Spreadsheets (and now add in presentations), Microsoft and AT&T crying about Google's deal with DoubleClick being "anti-trust", to the Viacom lawsuit with YouTube, a lot of ground was covered.

The most interesting pieces I took away from watching the entire interview:

  • Battelle notes that the "SEO/SEM community is a very loud and very vocal community"
  • Schmidt addresses the Performics issue with the DoubleClick purchase by saying "We've not made a decision, yet"  (that's about almost 12-13 minutes into the interview)
  • Google's pack (software you can download with desktop) has 3rd party software that removes DoubleClick cookies.  Schmidt commented that this software was very good, but they'll be figuring out where to go with the whole transition.
  • YouTube is going to be rolling out "CYC" - Claim Your Content in the very near future.  This is suppose to help with the entire copyright issue with illegally uploaded content.
  • Schmidt used Google's presentation software to show "possible announcements" he was going to make.  Software isn't due to be released until this summer.
  • Schmidt tried to play off the competitiveness of Google's products that do compete with Office, saying that Google's products don't offer near as much as what the Office suite does.
