Well, the Ray Ozzie and Bill Gates series of memos that were sent around here are now breaking in the news (Dave Winer is linking to the important ones and has a picture of Bill Gates up on his blog to boot). Around here we call the Gates one “the birthday memo.” In honor of BillG’s 50th birthday.
They are important memos. I’m still reeling from their significance. I don’t want to be the first one to break wind in public about them, but they are long memos. The longest I’ve received since becoming a Microsoft employee. They show clear understanding of how the world has changed. They answer a lot of the points I’ve been talking about here on my blog (and, in fact, have been influencing my thinking a lot).
Yes, the guys at top are now yelling “turn, turn, turn.”
Like I said: this disruption game is fun!
Update: Dave Winer just posted the memos.
