SPENCER STUART has taken out full page advertisements throughout European mainstream print publications in its search for "a senior European government affairs and public policy leader," someone who is "an experienced, articulate leader to assume the mantle of Google's Head of Public Policy and Government Affairs for Europe. This is a high-profile position, and the key issues you will address on Google's behalf--and on behalf of a free and open global Internet--include privacy and data protection, free expression, intellectual property reform, and efforts to regulate online content, advertising and technology." Since Google is blogphobic from top to bottom, I doubt that anyone who has a compelling online weblog would be shortlisted for this position.
