Someday, someone in tech will understand this:
Everybody’s door is closed. You don’t have permission to reach them. Only their friends do.
Raging red boldfaced emphasis added by me.
With Steve Jobs’ current blind spot, we await someone with brains and guts to enter the arena.
Twitter is not that gladiator.
Now I wonder if it could actually be Microsoft. They once had a clue…
… even though they were handcuffed by the RIAA.
Even Palm once had a clue: IRDA in its PDAs.
But Microsoft has the incentive. It’s drowning.
Yet given that company’s track record … I have a feeling we need someone outside of all of these loops.
And with this post, I’ve added a new Category: Socialtech. I’ll add that Category to past relevant posts later on.
