GoogleClick in Europe: We’ll “Preserve Some Business Practices”

Not sure exactly which practices, and the reporter on this Bloomberg piece apparently does not care to find out, any ideas?

“In response to third-party concerns, Google has committed to the European Commission that we will keep certain DoubleClick business practices unchanged,” Julia Holtz, Google’s London- based competition lawyer, said in an e-mailed statement. The acquisition is “a good deal” for publishers, advertisers and users, she said.

The Mark Zuckerberg Conversation

Some coverage of this conversation claim I was too hard on Mark. I don't think so, and I think he was pretty savvy in his response. His first answer left me a bit speechless, I'll admit – I am used to folks saying no comment when I ask about…

Steve Ballmer Conversation

Probably my favorite, at least, the most fun. Check out what happens when I ask Steve about search (about 21 minutes in). Just amazing….

Facebook All Hands

I posed the first question of the Web 2 Summit to Mark Zuckerberg (video). "How's the funding going," I asked him. "We're nearly done," he replied. Owen has a scoop: An all hands has reportedly been called for Tuesday for all Facebook employees. As someone who has called all…

I posed the first question of the Web 2 Summit to Mark Zuckerberg (video). “How’s the funding going,” I asked him. “We’re nearly done,” he replied.

Owen has a scoop: An all hands has reportedly been called for Tuesday for all Facebook employees. As someone who has called all hands meetings for hundreds of employees (at the Standard and at Wired), this does not happen without a very significant reason.

Perhaps Mark is now done…

Wow.

Web 2 was amazing, exhausting, and exhilarating. Thanks for all the kind words from readers, pals, and colleagues. The video is starting to trickle out, check the home page for all the links. It was really, really fun to interview Zuckerberg, Murdoch, DeWolfe, Ballmer, Stephenson, Doerr, and more. Wow….

The Web Bowl was hilarious, LaunchPad was awesome….four years in, it just keeps getting better.

Now, to sleep.

Nearly There

We're rounding the corner and into the home stretch at Web 2, today we hear from J. Craig Venter, Randall Stephenson of AT&T, the Google Alumni Club (folks who left Google recently) and John Doerr (who is on Google's board). Speaking of the company, it killed earnings again yesterday……

From ars:

The Free Flow of Information Act has just cleared the House by a vote of 398-21, but that doesn’t mean President Bush has any interest in signing it. The bill would offer protection of sources and documents to journalists (including professional bloggers) caught up in federal investigations, and could put an end to images of reporters led from court in handcuffs after refusing to testify. The Bush administration sees it as carte blanche to leak government information without penalty, though.

<rant on>Sorry Bush administration, this one is your bad. IF we can’t shield sources, the terrorists win, to turn your language around. Because democracy depends on folks standing up to overreaching powers that be. Including Presidents.
