Microsoft Reorg To Breathe Life in Live

Microsoft is continuing to reshape itself in Ray Ozzie's image. One of the bigger initiatives is Live, a series of Web services meant to bring in either advertising or subscription revenue.

Before the reorg, there was one group focused on the actual services and another to build the infrastructure pieces, such as directory and identity. Now these two groups are unified with the new entity tightly under the thumb of Mr. Ozzie.

To my mind, Microsoft hasn't really explained what Live is all about. It's clear that Microsoft is building an entirely new platform, but how will it actually work, when will it appear and how does it all affect existing products?

Can you explain Live? If so, shoot me some mail at dbarney@redmondmag.com. And yes, Ray, you're welcome to write in, as well.
