I'm re-reading all the pieces I wrote in 1997 and pulling quotes into several sections, Apple, Microsoft, Java, Push, Software and Life. There may be other categories. This is the first year that I've done this systematically. I've gotten thru March, as of 4PM Sunday. It goes realllly slow! Anyway, I was surprised to see that I wrote so much about push, and still had great hope for Apple. I can also see ways I was misled, or saw what I wanted to see instead of what was real. It's a big learning experience for me.
Here's a piece I forgot about. Viewed in the context of the times, when I was pushing the Mac so heavily, it had a different meaning. But now, with our newly arrived Windows software, the concepts take on a new meaning. Here's a way to coexist with Microsoft on Windows. We work together. This truly would be revolutionary for the software industry. We have something deep to offer the Windows developer world. But we are Windows newbies. We need help. Let's pull together. You'll be amazed what we can accomplish.
