ZDNet’s George Ou is looking into the performance of Microsoft Office 2003 and OpenOffice.org 2.0. Interesting results.
Interesting, if you’re a company and trying to get people to try your product, why not go on a road tour? That’s what IdeaBlade is doing. They are holding a nine-city tour for .NET developers. Silicon Valley, next week, then Dallas, New York, Washington DC, Seattle, Boston, Toronto, Atlanta, Chicago.
Tim O’Reilly is sitting next to me. For the past hour he was typing furiously. So, I just visited his blog to read what he was writing.
He wrote, in a post titled OCA vs. Google Print Library Project?: “This PR positioning makes me think that the OCA, a worthwhile effort (to which O’Reilly has contributed content), is being hijacked by Yahoo! and Microsoft as a way of undermining Google.”
I leaned over and said “I wish we were that smart.” We both had a good laugh about that.
