Eric Schmidt – Zeitgeist Americas 2013 – Clip


>>Eric Schmidt: We tend to think of everyone
being online. Everyone we know is online. Everyone we know
has a mobile phone. Everyone we know is actually enjoying the prospects and the power of this
information revolution. But it’s not actually true. What’s interesting
is roughly 2.3 billion people are online, roughly 3.4 billion people have mobile phones
— although there’s more mobile phone numbers — so we’re only either halfway or maybe a
fourth of the way done. It looks like there’s 5 billion people going
to join us who have never had access to the world that we’re talking about in the next
5 to 10 years. This is remarkable. This is life-changing
for them. This is an extraordinary change for them. So much bigger than the change that
will happen for us.
