Ogilvy Chief Makes Technology His Focus

Brian Fetherstonhaugh, Chairman and CEO of OgilvyOne Worldwide, spent the last 18 months touring his company’s 100 offices hunting for trends and found the monster that is affecting all businesses.

“The monster is that consumers everywhere are seizing back control through the use of technology,” he said in an interview with The New York Sun. “The iPod is not about a technology. It’s people seizing back music agendas from the DJs of the world. TiVo isn’t a storage device but it is people choosing their own television agenda. Google isn’t a search technology but a new shopping agenda for consumers. These are all the same thing: power to consumers.” Read more

Italy Demands Three-Day Warning for Google Street View Trips

By: David Murphy 10.23.2010

Life’s about to get a bit more frustrating for Google’s international Google Maps teams. That’s because regulators in Italy have mandated that Google take additional measures to warn local populaces when its Street View cars are out and about—and, more importantly, taking pictures of unsuspecting passersby and locations alike.

I recently challenged a product person at Google, asking if a certain option — toggling on or off Gmail’s threaded conversation view — would be possible on a thread by thread basis. The Googler responded that it was certainly possible but that they wouldn’t do it. Why? Because it would introduce complexity and confusion for users.

Google’s Schmidt: Computers, not humans, should be driving cars

By Sam Diaz | September 29, 2010, 4:00am PDT

Here’s an interesting thought: What if computers drove cars and left the passengers to eat, watch movies, maybe even take a nap?
On the stage at TechCrunch Disrupt conference in San Francisco, Google CEO Eric Schmidt suggested that that’s the way it really should be. During his presentation, he said:

“The average American doesn’t realize how much of the laws are written by lobbyists” to protect incumbent interests, Google CEO Eric Schmidt told Atlantic editor James Bennet at the Washington Ideas Forum. “It’s shocking how the system actually works.”

In a wide-ranging interview that spanned human nature, the future of machines, and how Google could have helped the stimulus, Schmidt said technology could “completely change the way government works.”

“Washington is an incumbent protection machine,” Schmidt said. “Technology is fundamentally disruptive.” Mobile phones and personal technology, for example, could be used to record the bills that members of Congress actually read and then determine what stimulus funds were successfully spent.
