The guys at iInnovate posted a lovely interview with Eric Schmidt, CEO of Google. Among the topics they covered were:

  • Anti-trust (with a beautiful deke to create “time and space” as we say in hockey)

  • Innovation

  • Competitive advantages

  • Motivation of entrepreneurs

  • Maintaining the entrepreneurial spirit

  • Traditional and non-traditional organization design

  • What Microsoft and Yahoo does that impresses him

  • Invention of disruptive technologies

My favorite line was: “You don’t learn very much when you yourself are talking.”
