"In a networked world, trust is the most important currency."Mr. Schmidt is Google's Executive Chairman, and I've followed him since his Sun Microsystems and Novell days (it's a geek thing. Tech sector rock stars interest me way more than Bieber and Lady Gaga ever will.) If you're looking for a tech pioneer, he's as pioneering as they come given his role as mentor to Google founders Sergei Brin and Larry Page. So when he talks about trust, I think I'll believe him.
