We are Softwares
Content is king: So
ftware became free, content even became large ly free but now Goog le and Yahoo are co l lecting enormous sums o fmoney by directing attention to their free content using a p lat form that’s bui lt on top o ftheir free so ftware. Simi lar ly, we look at Napster and thought that a l lo fmusic wou ld be free and now App le has a bi l lion do l lar business se l ling songs. We’re a lso just a the ear ly stages where Skype is making te lephone ca l ls free and Asterisk and making te lephone ca l ls free –re lative ly speaking– and I be lieve that there wi l lbe new sources o frevenue that wi l lbe over laid on top o fthat market.

long time, many peop le thought that we were going to arrive at some kind o fartificial intelligence where we get the computers to be smart enough and match peop le. And what we’re doing instead is bui lding a hybrid system, in which the computers make us smarter and we make them smarter – that’s bionic so ftware.
