    I’m publishing this Weblog to deepen perspectives on topics that light me up. These relate to my business communication, disruptive technologies and photography. 

    My work is changing so fast that I can barely grasp it all, much less fully comprehend the implications. Perhaps keeping this blog will help.

    Microsoft, Past and Future

    A key reason I started this blog was to help myself keep abreast of, and communicate about, disruptive technological change. In that vein, Horace Dediu has quantified something amazing, writing:

    If we include all iOS and Android devices the “computing” market in Q3 2008 was 92 million units of which Windows was 90%, whereas in Q3 2013 it was 269 million units of which Windows was 32%.

    Today as Microsoft announced its new CEO, John Gruber published a fascinating look at Microsoft, Past and Future.   I highly recommend it.
