Wednesday, November 2nd, 2005p>Tim O’Reilly was at a Microsoft press event in San Francisco to introduce the concept of “Live Software.”
Tim’s big takeaway was:
Microsoft is fully engaged with thinking about what I’ve called “Web 2.0.” They are focused on the internet as the platform, on software as a service, on creating rich experiences across multiple devices, on live update as a metaphor for both software and documents, on grassroots adoption as a result of user conversations. They are also very clearly focused on advertising as a new business model. We’re hearing all the Web 2.0 buzzwords: RSS, AJAX, social networking.
If you look at live.com you will see what looks like the start.com that came out of Microsoft a few months ago.
