It’s Going To Take More Than A Blog To Make Windows Media Cool

from Scobelizer, Microsoft’s Geek Blogger: “Hi Bill. I’ve been thinking about how to make Windows Media cool. You know, cooler than wearing white headphone cords.
Open source the product development.
Start a weblog. NOW. Get the person who runs the team to start a blog. NOW. Or fire him/her. I’m serious. Make it as cool as the King Kong blog. Put EVERYTHING up on that blog. Videotape every meeting. Every design session. Write something every day.”

  1. I’m not sure which fact I find more amazing. The fact that Scoble pitches Mr. Gates in such a voiciferous and public fashion. Or that he thinks Microsoft can out cool Apple.
    That he calls the richest man in America “Bill” and that he believes in blogs to a fault, I aslo find interesting, but not amazing.
