Google Chairman Eric Schmidt doesnt stay put for long. As Cuban blog 14ymedio reported, Schmidt and a delegation of other former Googlers and open internet advocates (including Jared Cohen, coauthor of a book with Schmidt), contacted them on Friday night and toured Cubas University of Information Sciences in Havana today. According to Yoani Sanchez, a blogger who resides on the island and helped found 14ymedio, Schmidt and his fellow travelers visited her organizations offices and they mostly asked questions about life in Cuba. No one took out their cellphones to check the web — its not possible in Cuba — and it didnt occur to anyone to show us the latest doodle, nor to tell us in figures the scale of the company in which they work, Sanchez wrote in The Huffington Post, describing the visit.
