I’m not biased in favor of Apple or Google or Amazon or Facebook or any other company. I’m biased toward products that work. I’m biased toward wanting to see the products I already love work better. Writing about flaws doesn’t mean that I or anyone completely hates a product entirely, nor is biased against the company that makes that product.
Danny Sullivan, Chris Sherman and Google SVP of Advertising Susan Wojcicki sat down this morning at SMX West. It was a capacity crowd as Chris Sherman introduces Wojcicki as “one of the 50 most influential business executives” (Forbes). He also characterizes her as someone “you may not have heard of at Google.”
