Quote to Note: Microsoft, The Disruptor

September 30, 2010

This statement in “Q&A with Steve Ballmer on Mobile, Search and Facebook” caught my attention. I liked it so much that I want to make it a quote to note. Here’s the passage:

That’s our job to be the disruptor in this business, and we’re going to work hard at it.

I like the idea of Microsoft as a disruptor. I am having some difficulty pinpointing a specific service from Microsoft which I use as a candidate. In terms of disruption, I think about open source search, the Apple iPad, and Facebook. Google and Microsoft, not so much.

This is probably the failing of a 66 year old goose.
