The Internet has entered a new "success disaster" stage, where there is so much information available online that users cannot find exactly what they want, according to Eric Schmidt, Novell?s chief executive.
In his keynote speech at Compaq's Innovate Forum in Houston, Schmidt said: "It is also difficult to see if people are who they say they are. If you can't trust people, how can you conduct ebusiness."
He continued: "Now we are entering a new wave and its the best thing that's happened to us. The first was about browsers, access, speed, presence and portals. The new wave is all about relationships, profiles, identity control, directories and trust."
