Ray Ozzie on Web Services

Techcrunch have an article about a memo from Microsoft’s chief software architect Ray Ozzie about the web and their services strategy.

A few quotes:

3Cs – content, commerce and community have expanded … and become intermixed and mutually reinforcing.

Head retailers such as Amazon utilise community extensively for recommendations, reviews and wish lists. Tail websites such as Craigslist utilise community extensively for conversation around local products.

Guiding Principles:

  1. The web is a hub of our social mesh and our device mesh. The web is first and foremost a mesh of people.
  2. The power of choice as business moves to embrace the cloud.
  3. Small pieces loosely joined for developers, within the cloud and across a world of devices.
