Benefiting by Occlusion June 12, 2006

Posted by David Card in Media.

From a must-read LA Times interview with Google CEO Eric Schmidt, EE Princeton, MS and PhD, Berkeley:

    Q: Google gives engineers paid time to work on side projects. That gives some people the sense that it’s impossible to harness what’s happening here and that there’s no grand plan.

    A: We benefit by occlusion. But of course there’s a grand plan. And that grand plan is search — as we define it.

Occlusion, huh? Stuff likes this keeps us in business. I’m assuming this isn’t a transcription error.
