Google CEO finds MySpace very interesting

Flickr FoundersFlickr brains, Caterina Fale and her programmer husband, Stewart Butterfield, have made the cover of Newsweek magazine.

Though the Newsweek cover story is about Web 2.0, it carries an interesting remark by Eric Schmidt of Google that clearly outlines the future vision of Google.

Schmidt says that he doesn't understand why people think his company wants to be the next Microsoft. "Everybody thinks we're building operating systems, PCs and browsers. They clearly don't get it," he says. So where does Google want to go? "Look at MySpace," he says cryptically. "Very interesting."

Looks like a big hint - something is cooking at Google.
