Megan Garber did an excellent job reporting on Google CEO Eric Schmidt’s speech to the American Society of Newspaper Editors here at the Nieman Journalism Lab site.
An excerpt from her summary of Schmidt’s speech:
On Google’s “mobile-first” focus:
It’s important to understand that three things are coming together: the powerful mobile devices that …are paired with the tremendous performance that we can now get on computers…it is the sum of that, and the capabilities and the technologies that will exploit the sum of that, that will define the next ten or twenty years for all of us. So when I say “Internet first,” I mean “mobile first.”
