That was the quote that stuck in my mind today from our Partnering for the Future roundtable in Cambridge. I'll not attribute it here but I suspect the owner may own up anyway :)
We had a great day of listening and learning from 11 partners who had strong views around Web 2.0, Web 3.0, skills, the creative industries, transparency at Microsoft and much more. I'll be summarizing soon but our team (including UK MD Gordon Frazer and Partner Director Scott Dodds) left in no doubt that we can do a tonne more with the help of this group and their friends. They're our brand ambassadors.
More to follow soon but the main thing I left with was we need to hang out with these folks more often and listen. We have much to learn.
That's not what the internets is about when I'm around. Usually it's about some crazy Jpop (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0aKBuEt-xj4) which then turns into a conversation about incest which then turns into a conversation about eggs.
If you're curious, there's more detail on those conversations at http://www.unsanity.org/archives/rant/caring_for_developers.php (search for "incest"). Note this is a 22 page completely rambling rant that no one is actually supposed to read, I just needed a method to cry out my angries and that was how I chose to do it. I'm just pointing out another aspect of the scary Web.
Also, when did Web 3.0 come about?
Come on Rosyna, we're up to Web 4.0 already...keep up! thanks for the link to the YouTube video though...that totally freaked me out!
off to read your 22 pages...
