He now serves on Obama’s President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST), after working on his transition team. Schmidt will retire from his CEO position at Google this month but will remain executive chairman of Google.
This decision comes after two controversies with Google in the past month. First, a new book claims that Schmidt attempted to get the record of a political contribution removed from Google archives so people wouldn’t easily find it.
