Google CEO Eric Schmidt’s Commencement Address @ Carnegie Mellon

The following are excerpts from Eric Schmidt’s commencement address at Carnegie Mellon’s 112th commencement ceremony, held May 17, 2009.

You cannot plan innovation. You cannot plan invention. All you can do is try very hard to be at the right place and be ready.

How should you behave? Well, do things in a group. Don’t do things by yourself. Groups are stronger, groups are faster. None of us is as smart as all of us.

I wonder what Thomas Edison would think about Mr. Schmidt’s comments above?
