  1. Wow…that was a great Computerworld article…

    “The idea of large businesses acting on strategies that were created in meetings where no one was giving matters their full attention just boggles the mind. Such group behavior amounts to a collective attention deficit disorder.”

    Yeah, and bloggers are worse. This is what really bothers me about the whole blog geek crowd (Microsoft in particular), they can’t sit still or focus, it’s all informational strobe lights on seriously high volume. Can drive someone, not on the 60 second attention-span highway, quite insane. It’s like trying to carry on a meaningful conversation with say, Beth Goza, for more than 5 mins, while sticking to one topic, it just ain’t gonna happen.

  3. Ever think he’s human, and actually works? Today I go from 9 to after 7 without any real stops. So I will look a bit frazzled too. But that photo of him isn’t the best. When Gates was here at the UW a few weeks ago, he looked like he usually does.
