In SF Gate [sfgate.com]:

Re the 99% who aren't like him:


Google chairman Eric Schmidt says that people in Silicon Valley don't talk about the concerns of the 99% because "...their issues are not our daily reality."

He also said "We live in a bubble, and I donít mean a tech bubble or a valuation bubble. I mean a bubble as in our own little world.... Companies canít hire people fast enough. Young people can work hard and make a fortune. Homes hold their value."


Must be some bubble if he doesn't have a moment to reflect with his peers the suffering going on in American today.

Whether it is the 99% or not, Google lives in its own reality. IMHO.

I'll bet Google have Arks waiting for their employees when the time comes.

Yah, I'm aware that Europe is teetering on a major dip in the toilet, merkel, italy, greece, etc. and it concerns me greatly. The context of the statement however is Northern California/America. ;)

You have to wonder how those people can hope to understand what is relevant if they do not understand what concerns, drives and motivate the majority of people today. There is a range of anxiety, fear and pain felt by people across the range of social, racial, religious and political identities. How can those at Google understand what people want in the search box when they do not understand those who manicure their nails and landscape their multimillion dollar estates?

Maybe the Google Bubble explains the poor user interfaces of their various services?
