BIll Gates stepping down


I think Dan Gillmor has the best (and shortest) take on Bill Gates’ announcement that he’ll be focusing on the work of the Gates Foundation rather than Microsoft.

I also admire the great work that the Gates Foundation has been doing.

I also think that Ray Ozzie is a smart fellow who is undertaking some brave work in trying to orient Microsoft to the emergence of the open nature of the Web. I’ll be down in Mountain View next week for a meeting with the Windows Live Mail and Calendaring teams, so I hope to get some first hand info on how that effort is coming.
