@alvin123 's quote :
However, by being drawn further into publishing or featuring its own content, at the same time as search, Google is taking risks that it used to shy away from.
In 2010 Eric Schmidt, then its chief executive and now its chairman, said the firm was “careful to define a line where we don’t cross into content”.
That creed is now apparently being abandoned across the business, with Google now effectively serving as a backer for YouTube video producers and, in London, even building them a studio to make more professional clips.
