Googling the audienceBy Joshua Hatch Sep 22 2011 3:17 p.m.
Yesterday, senators quizzed Google's former CEO and current board of directors president Eric Schmidt about the company's size, practices, and potential for anti-competitive behavior. Concerned that the government might try to flex its muscle against the search and mobile giant, Schmidt assured the senators that Google was no Microsoft, and that 2011 was no 1995.
The hearing, titled "The Power of Google: Serving Consumers or Threatening Competition?" provides some insights into the concerns of some members of the the subcommittee on Antitrust, Competition Policy and Consumer Rights. Others with those concerns filled the hearing room. We'd like your help identifying who they are.
