Moore Blogs/More Blogs...
Learned tonight, courtesy of Halley, that Geoffrey Moore has a blog (more than one, perhaps?). In his “Dealing with Darwin” blog, Moore has a smattering of posts on topics pointing at the evolution of innovation, technology, and the technology industry. The blog is named after Moore’s upcoming book of the same name… can’t wait to read it. Moore also has a Dealing with Darwin website – funny, the site and blog don’t seem to be linked.
To me, Moore is a giant. He certainly pioneered and advanced a variety of views on the tech industry that helped some separate the wheat from chaff particularly in software companies before, during and after the bubble.
I’ve written about Moore before. I’m also about 20 minutes into a 40 minute video tonight where Moore describes what he thinks the evolution of the tech marketplace may look like for the remainder of this decade, and perhaps the next. Funny thing – he spoke on the topic at Sand Hill Group’s Software 2004 conference and guess what… some of the industry shift he spoke of then is coming to bear today. For Moore’s read on Microsoft’s recent strategy shift, and in particular Ray Ozzie’s role in it, see his post entitled “Microsoft Meet Darwin: Again”.
Geoff, if you need someone to read galleys, do some part-time environmental scanning, or create an online community and blogs to support the cases and materials in, and readers of, the book, I could probably find the time and we could probably work something out… (grin)
Hey, in closing, if you’re not reading Halley’s Comment, which I refer to often here at blahgKarma, you should be. Its a load of fun, the topics vary greatly, and I love the writing style. Try it, you’ll like it!
