Many of you who follow Microsoft or work in the tech industry are readers of Mary Jo Foley's All About Microsoft blog at ZDNet. Mary Jo has been covering Microsoft in print and online for two decades and is the last word on the company and its effects on the world as we know it.
Now she's taking a step farther out to give readers a look at the future of Microsoft in a book titled Microsoft 2.0: How Microsoft Plans to Stay Relevant in the Post-Gates Era (her first book). The book was inspired by the upcoming changing of the guard at Microsoft, when Bill Gates hands off the reins of the behemoth he created. (The transition is scheduled for June, 2008.)
How will this affect those who buy from, supply, work for, or compete with Microsoft? Read Microsoft 2.0. Mary Jo is still working on the book (scheduled for Spring, 2008), she is open to any suggestions or contributions for the book.
