In part one of our three-part video interview with David Eun, Google Inc.'s vice president of content partnerships, he underlines that the Internet company sees the Web as a place for companies to collaborate, rather than engage in the usual portal-eat-portal competition. Of course, if you're Google and, like Daniel Plainview in "There Will be Blood," drinking everyone's milkshake, it's easy to be magnanimous.
Still, Eun sounds earnest in describing Google's wish to ally with a maximum number of content players in order to optimize users' experience. The goal? Content anywhere, anytime, on any device. Start sucking.
Tune in later this week for parts two and three of the interview. - Alain Sherter
