The Entire D6 Interview With Thomson Reuters CEO Tom Glocer (1 of 3)

We’re posting all the interviews from the sixth D: All Things Digital conference that took place in late May.

Unfortunately, due to issues too complicated to go into, we have to post all the D6 interviews in several 15-minute parts (I know, I know).

But–as many readers have requested–they will all be available in their entirety in this column.

Here’s Part 1 of 3 of an interview I did with Thomson Reuters CEO Tom Glocer.

(I will post one video part of the discussion with Glocer once a day this week, starting today and concluding Wednesday.)

Thomson Reuters was created by a merger in April that created one of the world’s biggest information companies, mostly aimed at businesses and professionals.

In this video, Glocer talks about his geeky background and about making a business selling news and information distribution in the digital age by having the deepest, most reliable and most comprehensive data–able to be consumed by both humans and machines.

People argue about, are we in a post-PC world. Why are we arguing? Of course we’re in a post-PC world, but that doesn’t mean the PC dies. That just means that the scenarios that we use them in, we stop referring to them as PCs, we refer to these other things. But it’s still general computation.
