Eric Schmidt in Corea del Nord

Eric Schmidt in Corea del Nord

Eric Schmidt, mister Google, insieme a Bill Richardson sono arrivati in Corea del Nord e ci resteranno per quattro giorni, ufficialmente per quella che l'ex governatore del New Mexico ha descritto come una visita umanitaria privata con l'obiettivo di chiedere la liberazione di un cittadino americano, Kenneth Bae, detenuto dal regime di Pyongyang.
Oggi la delegazione ha visitato la Kim Il Sung University interessandosi principalmente allo sviluppo di internet e dei sistemi informativi nordcoreani.

Il 10, una volta rientato in Cina, il gruppo terrà una conferenza stampa sul viaggio e sui suoi eventuali sviluppi.

Eric Schmidt CEO di Apple 01.02.11

E' il rumor di oggi.

what is interesting is Schidt's response to the question as to if Apple has approached him to offer him the post of CEO-in-waiting. Here he said, "I'm not going to talk about private conversations with anybody."

Il motivo del cambio al vertice di Google 25.01.11

Eric Schmidt, amministratore delegato di Google, lascerà il 4 aprile il timone al co-fondatore Larry Page, mentre Sergey Brin assumerà un ruolo più attivo nei progetti strategici e nello sviluppo dei servizi.

Ma cosa ha spinto Schmidt a lasciare la guida dell'impero?
Il New Yorker prova a dare una risposta.

Was Eric Schmidt pushed or did he jump? Both. According to close advisors, the Google C.E.O. was upset a year ago when co-founder Larry Page sided with his founding partner, Sergey Brin, to withdraw censored searches from China. Schmidt did not hide his belief that Google should stay in the world’s largest consumer marketplace. It was an indication of the nature of the relationship Schmidt had with the founders that he-as Brian Cashman of the Yankees did this week-acknowledged that the decision was made above his head. He often joked that he provided "adult supervision," and was never shy about interrupting the founders at meetings to crystallize a point. In the eleven interviews I conducted with him for my book on Google, he freely told anecdotes about the founders, sometimes making gentle fun of them, never seeming to look over his shoulder. Yet he always made clear that they were "geniuses" and he, in effect, was their manager. After a bumpy first couple of years after he joined Google as C.E.O. in 2001, they had developed a remarkable relationship. But also a weird one. How many successful organizations have a troika making decisions? Schmidt, according to associates, lost some energy and focus after losing the China decision. At the same time, Google was becoming defensive. All of their social-network efforts had faltered. Facebook had replaced them as the hot tech company, the place vital engineers wanted to work. Complaints about Google bureaucracy intensified. Governments around the world were lobbing grenades at Google over privacy, copyright, and size issues. The "don't be evil" brand was getting tarnished, and the founders were restive. Schmidt started to think of departing. Nudged by a board-member friend and an outside advisor that he had to re-energize himself, he decided after Labor Day that he could reboot.

La sentenza italiana contro Google è una sciocchezza 06.06.10

Luca De Biase e Mantellini si interrogano sull'intervista rilasciata da Eric Schmidt - CEO di Google - al Financial Times riguardo la sentenza italiana che ha colpito il motore di ricerca e la sua politica in fatto di privacy e gestione dei contenuti, per il caso che vedeva coinvolti atti di bullismo nei confronti di un ragazzino disabile poi pubblicati su Google Video.
E in particolare criticano il termine bullshit, molto usato negli USA, che Schmidt pronuncia contro l'accusa rivolta alla sua società.

By contrast, Mr Schmidt shows no contrition when responding to the recent court ruling in Italy convicting three top Google executives of criminal wrongdoing after its YouTube video website showed footage of a disabled boy being bullied by classmates.

"The judge was flat wrong. So let's pick at random three people and shoot them. It's bullshit. It offends me and it offends the company."

"But this is not an indictment of Italy," says Mr Schmidt, who earlier noted that Europe was a highly profitable market for the company.

There is a sense at the top of Google that the world is definitely becoming a less friendly place for internet companies. The shift goes beyond the issue of privacy or the company’s recent decision to withdraw from China on the grounds of censorship.

In questo caso la traduzione migliore per bullshit è "balla" nel significato di bugia, non "stronzata".
O meglio "It's bullshit" qui andrebbe tradotto come "è un balla" o "è una sciocchezza".
