Doc Searls on Microsoft In Reality
Doc jumps in with both feet on the new zeal with which Microsoft's Gates and Ozzie are trying to do a landgrab on the Web OS/Apps/2.0 revolution:
[from Microsoft in Reality — a look at the latest memos from Gates and Ozzie | Linux Journal]
Now that everything is being built by everybody with fewer and fewer dependencies on any one vendor as a sole source of technology, it will be harder and harder to build silos for people and companies that are losing their willingness to live in them.
Which is why I see this whole thing as an adjustment of Microsoft to reality, rather than a call by Microsoft for the reverse.
Doc, as usual, cuts like a scalpel. And, no surprise, harmonizes with my recent post, Scoble on Google, on the same topic. [In fact it was a recent Scoble post (see Paying Attention To The Post-memo Blogs) that drew my attention to Doc's piece.
