VIDEO: What does the Google-Yahoo potential ad partnership mean to you? (KQED)

by David Spark on July 20, 2008

Friday night I appeared on KQED’s “This Week in Northern California” all prepared to talk in great detail about the debate going on at Capitol Hill regarding Google and Yahoo’s potentially anti-competitive and monopolistic advertising practices. While we initially talked about that, the conversation trailed off onto a whole variety of related subjects. Watch and let me know what you think. Only five minutes.

I think you did a great job with this show apparition.
I think that this partnership would be pretty bad for the Internet. First of all, I really believe there is a huge risk of monopoly. It is important to keep a great competition in this market, especially after what we have seen with the Google stock depreciating due to a large speculation on it.

Secondly, I think that the Internet is changing, with the arrival of mobility and video content. And that implies some new search engine techniques. It is important that we keep a good competition level in order to create an emulation. I believe that if Yahoo and Google make a partnership, it will slow down the research and the development of new techniques of search.
