Why tech firms here have high hopes over Google chairman's visit [koreatimes.co.kr]
An industry official told The Korea Times that Schmidt, who will hold a news conference at Google’s Korean headquarters, Tuesday, is preparing to make a publicity splash by announcing a number of big investment moves, which may or may not involve a local Internet data center (IDC).
A new investment plan will also help Google massage the egos of Internet regulators here, whose attempts to limit online anonymity to curb cyber bullying were dismissed by the search giant.
Rumors that Google is interested in acquiring Daum, the country’s second-largest search destination behind Naver, are also not dissipating.
Google Korea declined to comment specifically.
