  • The Ozzie and Bill Memos

    The memos are nothing more than marketing, in Washington DC they're called leaks or more appropriately "trial balloons". The boys in Redmond are just taking a technique perfected in DC and applying to the computer biz. Obviously Ozzie didn't email his to the PR department at Microsoft. I wouldn't be surprised to find in the distribution lists on their Exchange Server a group titled "Leaks" or "Undisclosed Source".
