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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
And yes, Ray, you're welcome to write in, as well.
