Hola Todos – are you ready for a little hyperbole?
While I fully agree that there is a bit of truth in every statement, this might have gone a little too far. I understand that SEO/SEM search is not as powerful at it once was now that people are searching for information via Facebook, Linkedin and especially apps but search is still very strong.
So….it just too much for me to think that “Google’s goose is cooked” as per this 3 minute video from Elevation Partners. Apple 2.0 – Mac new from outside the reality distortion field is one of my favorite blogs. So when I saw this post – it just way over the edge – interesting but not what I think is happening in search.
Another interesting note – Elevation Partners co-founder Roger McNamee is very influential out there in northern CA land – the firm is called Elevation Partners because Bono of U2 fame (e.g., U2’s song “Elevation”) is also a founding partner. Another interesting note – Elevation Partners has a large stake in RIM – a major iPhone competor yet the Mr. McNamee can’t hide his admiration for Apple in this video.
