Richard McManus: Ray Ozzie and the future of Microsoft

This is a great post by Richard McManus about the future of Microsoft according to Ray Ozzie. Ray Ozzie, as most of us though, is pushing Windows Live to be the center of Microsoft’s future strategy.Richard hypotesizes that we’re now in a post-Web 2.0 era. I tend to agree with Richard’s perspective. I’m just kicking myself for not picking up more Microsoft stock when it was between 21.50 and 22. As of 15:18 on July 31st, it’s at 24.12, down $0.13.

The text of Microsoft chief software architect Ray Ozzie’s speech at Thursday’s Microsoft Financial Analyst Meeting 2006, makes compelling reading. To me it sums up why we’ve moved far beyond the Web 2.0 trend and into something much deeper and richer. Web innovation, which is primarily what my blog explores, is no longer just about Flickr, del.icio.us, the latest video sharing site, or the latest social network on the block.
