Google’s CEO Eric Schinidt has visited Korea this week to attend the Seoul Digital Forum 2007. “It’s obvious to me that Korea is a great laboratory of the digital age,” Schmidt said in a speech at the Seoul Digital Forum. On Tuesday, Schmidt met with Daum Communications Corp., South Korea’s No. 2 Internet search engine, to discuss broadening their partnership, Daum said. Daum late last year decided to end its advertising relationship with Yahoo Inc. in favor of using Google for paid search results. Schmidt has met Korea’s main mobile carriers SK Communications president Yoo Hyun-oh, too.
