“It is mathematically possible for Google to become a $100B corporation” — Eric Schmidt

“It is mathematically possible for Google to become a one-hundred-billion-dollar corporation.”

– Eric Schmidt, discussing Google’s move into advertising on mobile phones

While any company can claim it is mathematically possible to soar to unbelievable heights, such claims have more weight coming from Google’s CEO.

This just one of many interesting bits from Ken Auletta’s profile of Google in this week’s New Yorker.

Others: Schmidt shushing Brin on a Patriot Act question, Page and Brin annoyed with a product engineering team showing insufficient “ambitiousness”, Auletta’s observation that Google’s ’08 revenue may match that of the four largest TV networks combined.

Worth a read.

    1. Hi,
      Would you possibly have Ken Auletta’s contact info. I would like to ask him a question that may influence the direction of our technical development. Ken briefly touched upon a very significant aspect of convergence that is very important to us. Some level of clarification would be most beneficial.]
      Thank you in advance,
      Michael

    2. I don’t know him personally; I’d suggest reaching him through the magazine. Cheers — A
