  • Blog Post: Ray Ozzie…in words

    A new post from Ray this morning….Dawn of a new day. Summarized above courtesy of Wordle . Still noodling on it as today is a mad sprint around campus for me chatting with Windows Phone guys, OEM team, Zune team and Ray’s team. Should be fun. Tweet
  • Blog Post: Ray Ozzie is back blogging

    Tweet ….and he’s started with a corker of a post by publishing the Windows 1.0 Press Kit to Docs.com . His FUSE Labs team, led by Lili Cheng, are the team behind Docs.com so I expected they just got a good jolt of traffic from Ray’s post and shows one of their cool new features - browser-based PDF reading...
  • Blog Post: Gartner Fellows interview with Ray Ozzie on Cloud Computing

    Just over a week ago I was sent the Gartner Fellows Interview With Microsoft's Ray Ozzie on Cloud Computing . It’s a great read with Ray’s usual style of giving intriguing answers to tough questions about Microsoft’s cloud computing strategy. I asked our folks in Redmond if this would be released publicly...
  • Blog Post: This Isn’t Your Grandfathers Microsoft

      Dan’l Lewin talked at LeWeb this week and whilst I thought Marissa Mayer from Google won the crowd over more, Dan’l had some interesting stuff to say. He talked about BizSpark of course which is an awesome offering if you’re a startup and want a tonne of nearly free ($100) software….more interesting...
  • Blog Post: O’Reilly Favours Ozzie at Tech Czar

      I almost missed this one on the BBC but a pal in Redmond pinged it to me – Tim O’Reilly suggesting Ray Ozzie as Obama’s technology czar. Lots of names have been suggested but it’s the first time I’ve heard Ray’s name for this post and Tim has more cred to make a suggestion like this than some...
  • Blog Post: Saving Microsoft: Can Ray Ozzie Fix the House that Bill Built?

    The short answer: YES… I think so The long answer: Below….   Well here’s the article I have been waiting a couple of months for – Ray Ozzie on the over of Wired this month (edition 16-12). It’s still not hit the UK shores in hard copy but a friend kindly sent me a scan to read over the weekend....
  • Blog Post: Ozzie at PDC: Services Services Services

    I think Long already posted something similar but I wanted to add Ray Ozzie’s Day 1 keynote to my Wordle collection. Adds to a host of others I did a while back that show how consistent Ray is. This cloud is just Ray’s part of the talk – doesn’t include Amitabh Srivastava, Bob Muglia and David Thompson...
  • Blog Post: Microsoft 3.0

    What I believe you actually saw last week at the PDC, if you looked carefully, was Microsoft 3.0   The dust is now settling on PDC 2008 and more measured commentary is arriving . I’ve been waiting for this PDC for a long time and to see the reaction. I thought I’d give you my take on what really...

  • Blog Post: The Ray Ozzie files #2

    Back in March after our MIX08 event I wrote a post about Ray Ozzie titled “ The Ray Ozzie files ” and decided it was time for another instalment. Regular readers of my blog will know I’m a big fan of Ray as a technical visionary and someone who brings some overdue change to Microsoft – notably an outside...
  • Blog Post: My US tour closes out with Ozzie

    I’m writing this from Atlanta airport on the final leg of my US tour – over 2 weeks in the US at Worldwide Partner Conference, a short vacation in Miami and then on to our Global Sales Conference in Atlanta. Talk about heat! I’ve been at the company getting on for 11 years now and I have to say after...
  • Blog Post: Ozzie Picks Up The Geek Baton

    This is part of the official BillG leaving video and I love the part at the start where Ray Ozzie says he enjoyed talking “geek to geek” with Bill Gates. J Allard is also in the video along with Craig Mundie . If you ever get the chance to see Mundie speak, take it. He’s fantastic. With him and Ray at...
  • Blog Post: The Quiet Ozzie revolution

    I really enjoyed Mitchell Ashley’s post in Network World titled Ozzie, You Must Transform Microsoft . Mary Jo Foley’s recent book, Microsoft 2.0 , take a thorough look at some of the challenges that lay ahead for Microsoft but in a few short paragraphs I think Mitchell does a pretty solid job. The man...
  • Blog Post: Guide To Cloud Computing

    InformationWeek says Cloud Computing is a “megatrend” and I’d totally agree with them. If it isn’t now, it will be in 6 months – it pays to be ahead of the curve and from speaking with a few analysts recently, it’s definitely a hot topic for them which is a useful barometer. Cloud computing is likely...
  • Blog Post: Ray Ozzie Talking Mesh, Cloud Computing And More

    The Bill and Steve show along with Windows 7 is capturing much of the news at the moment on Techmeme but I was more interested in Ray Ozzie’s talk today.

    [photo by Dan Farber] [updated with link to webcast] Ray Ozzie will present at the Bernstein Strategic Decisions event this week and the event will be webcast   at 9 am Eastern Time on Wednesday.

  • Blog Post: Ray Ozzie’s latest memo – Software plus Services strategy

    Hot on the heels if the Live Mesh announcement, the full text of Ray Ozzie’s Live Software plus Services strategy memo is now available. Here’s my advice – read it once. Then walk away…come back a while later and read it again. Ray has a different style that a few commentators over the last week have...
  • Blog Post: The Ray Ozzie files

      [photo by Dan Farber] I enjoy reading interviews with Ray - you can almost sense the wheels whirring away in his head as every answer comes across as measured but not spun by PR. Two very interesting interviews today, the first with Om Malik and another I just finished reading in The Financial...
  • Blog Post: Ozzie announces Tech Preview

      [photo from Dan Farber ] This was a surprise to me and it almost made me miss my flight from LA. Just as Mix08 ended, attendees got an email invite to the tech preview that Ray Ozzie mentioned was coming over the horizon :)   "During Wednesday's keynote, Ray Ozzie mentioned an exciting...
