Bill Gates – The Next Chapter
And that’s all this news raging about Bill Gates is – the next chapter. Obviously itâ€™s the next chapter in his life, and in Microsoft’s.Itâ€™s also the next chapter for the technology industry, and computing as a whole. I’ve purposely avoided reading too many articles on the topic of his “moving” to part time.
The little bit I read was Scoble’s Heading to the BBC post, and Jeff Jarvis’ post The meaning of Bill. Both are insightful and told me more about the meaning of this change than any 5 second sound bite.
Regardless of your opinion of Bill Gates, at least read these two pieces.
UPDATE: Mathew Ingram also has makes some interesting points on Microsoft and questions what would be best for the company.
