Two great articles on Microsoft's Ray Ozzie and his latest memo concerning the future of computing.
The money quote from the memo:
" 'We're moving toward a world of 1) cloud-based continuous services that connect us all and do our bidding, and 2) appliance-like connected devices enabling us to interact with those cloud-based services,' he writes. He continues:
'At first blush, this world of continuous services and connected devices
doesn't seem very different than today. But those who build, deploy and
manage today's websites understand viscerally that fielding a truly
continuous service is incredibly difficult and is only achieved by the
most sophisticated high-scale consumer websites. And those who build and
deploy application fabrics targeting connected devices understand how
challenging it can be to simply & reliably just 'sync' or 'stream'.
To achieve these seemingly simple objectives will require dramatic
innovation in human interface, hardware, software and services.' "
