Google CEO and New America Foundation Chairman of the Board Eric Schmidt
Go back to glasses and the smartish nerd look.
collp.jpgApologies to global readers of The Washington Note, but I have to telegraph to my many New America Foundation colleagues my concern that our new Chairman of the Board Eric Schmidt and our new President and two time Pulitzer prize winner Steve Coll look like they were stamped out of the same human printing press.
It’s uncanny how much that they look alike. . .
Coincidence? or on purpose?

    I don’t think they look that much alike but maybe it’s an “in person” thing-they do good work. I’ve seen Coll speak at NYU but not the other guy


  2. PrahaPartizan says:

    I suspect they look just like a majority of the rest of the Board too. It’s well known that organizations favor a particular “look” and bring on board people preferentially who meet that unspoken requirement. Some would call it bias, but can it be bias when it’s not even registering in the minds of the people making the decisions.
