Now blogging at diego's weblog. See you over there!

more from the oh-my-god dept

Microsoft recently promoted a lawyer to the top ranks of its management. Now Sun will apparently announce that a marketing guy is going to manage the Linux/Solaris software teams.

Am I the only one that there is something very, very wrong with this trend?

Prague under water

Prague is in danger of being buried by floods. Global warming or natural cyclical behavior? Maybe a bit of both.

On Groove and Windows

Dan Gillmor tracks a discussion with Ray Ozzie. The question is, could Windows take away what Groove provides, in terms of information sharing, etc?

At the beginning, I'd say no. Ultimately, I'd say yes. In the end, anything that ties itself to Windows too tightly will eventually become part of it and fall under Microsoft's "Windows Everywhere" strategy. Other systems would be left out. More monopoly. And that can't mean real sharing, since it would mean that to "participate" you'd have to be a Windows creature.

Any environment that aims to be good for information exchange should be platform-agnostic, I think.
