Microsoft's Billion (Users)
Just a quick post to point out one of the more fascinating articles I've read lately. It's from the current issue of Fast Company and it's all about Gary Flake, head of Microsoft's Live Labs. My favorite excerpt:
In Microsoft's unparalleled reach--more than a billion computer users worldwide--Flake sees an unparalleled collective power; the more people contribute data to a site, he says, the richer it becomes for each user.
After reading this article I couldn't help feel he's yet another genius who found his way to Redmond and is now trying to do something that's both breathtaking and game-changing. I hope he succeeds...we could use something new and exciting from Microsoft.
