Bloomberg by Bloomberg, at Google
New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg -- a guy who knows firsthand about using technology to make information more available -- visited the Googleplex yesterday to see the campus and talk to Googlers about a broad range of issues.
In an hour-long discussion, the CEO Mayor of the Big Apple discussed a broad range of topics with Google's Sheryl Sandberg. Among other things, the mayor touched on privacy in the Internet age, the challenges of running America's largest city in the wake of 9/11, the status of the U.S. in the world, and the state of the presidential campaign.
Mayor Bloomberg also addressed the question of whether he plans to throw his hat in the presidential ring (at about the 38 minute mark). What did he say? Check out the video on YouTube:
