OPA Report, ADBE/MSFT Continued, Time Magazine's Chief Says to Embrace Digital, Google's Spreadsheet
A key point in the study: the Internet enhances other media. Our lack of embrace of the Internet as a strategy to drive print is almost embarassing.
Adobe/Microsoft article from the Washington Post
Time magazine chief says magazines must embrace digital. Ummmmm... wasn't that why they merged with AOL?
Much has been made of Google having an online spreadsheet program. It's really quite basic and kind of a ho-hum idea. But when we go back to centralized computing (remember Sun's Scott McNealy saying "the network is the computer" about 10 years ago?) and we get more speed and reliability, maybe then this will make sense. For right now, it's a good place to store things until you get back to your own computer.
