Watch your step... the slipping and sliding continues. Now Office 2007 will also wait until the year it is named after to see the light of day in any meaningful way. And a shakeup that looks more like a refelxive shudder than deliberate planning with a real vision is underway.
James Farrar focuses on the business balance between financial performance and social-environmental impact.
I'm all but offline today, attending David Allen's Getting Things Done Roadmap seminar. The hotel has $12-a-day net acccess that doesn't seem to work so I'm resorting to just better than dial-up speeds via my Treo to post this.
So Michael Robertson is getting all disruptive on us again. The Linspire/Gizmo Project dude is jumping on the free AJAX word processing bandwagon with ajaxWrite.
As I've been following the very noisy conversation about the Vista ship date slipping and the resulting impact it will likely have on Q4 PC sales, I had an idea.

I've just wrapped an intense week of strategic planning at my company which has left me in a reflective state of mind. While I was wrestling with choices that will have a profound influence on the future direction we will take, it appears that two guys named David have been making similar decisions about their respective futures.
