Google CEO Discusses Future of the Web and Enterprise Computing

Eric Schmidt, CEO of Google, was interviewed at Gartner Symposium on the future of the Web and enterprise computing (video). Eric said to about 5000 CIOs attending the event, that Chinese will soon be a dominant language on the net and broadband connections will be so fast that various forms of media — such as radio and TV — will be blurred. In five years, "it will be possible to have broadband networks through out at least the western world — already true in Korea, Japan and Singapore for example — that are well above a 100 mega bits in performance and at those speeds the distinctions between radio, television, cable — you know all these sort of distribution distinctions… really go away technically. The distinctions may exist from a licensing perspective but ultimately the owners of this copyright will see a larger market and will find a way to distribute it on the Internet for pay or what have you."
