Google as a force for good?
Each Fortune conference -- from Brainstorm Green, Brainstorm Tech, to the Most Powerful Women Summit, and the Global Forum -- yields fascinating conversations with the best and brightest minds in business.
Fortune wants to make it even easier for you to eavesdrop. The Fortune Brainstorm podcast is a weekly show that features recorded conversations from Fortune's live events.
This week, Google has been working through an antitrust probe with European regulators, so it seemed like a good time to check in with the recurring quesitons over Google's power. As Google gains access to more and more information worldwide, Google executives insit the company, and technology as a whole, is a force for good. We have audio on hand from a conversation between Google's Chairman Eric Schmidt and venture capitalist and Pay Pal co-founder Peter Thiel. The conversation took place at Brainstorm Tech last year, and the two debate the merits of tech as a whole and Goolge specifically.
Fortune senior tech writer Miguel Helft sheds some light on Google's self-image, as well as the true extent of the tech company's might.
