Gates: "We call this the personal Web. Instead of you going to a Web page and it deciding what you're interested in, you'll be able to pick pieces of information from different websites. You'll be able to create applications and programs that use that information. That will give you power to assemble news or find the best price for a product. You'll be in control of that experience. And companies like ours will provide services online such as Microsoft Office or passport authentication."
News.Com: "The values that are inherent in the antitrust laws are ones that are sound in my opinion," Gore, the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination, said. "If dominance in one area is used to prevent competition in another area, that is wrong," he added.

A brief note welcoming Doc Searls to the world of weblogs. Doc is my teacher, a former radio guy, then founder of a Silicon Valley marketing firm, and lately an editor at Linux Journal and co-author of the Cluetrain Manifesto (coming in Jan) and the great Cluetrain website. Doc and I share a vision of the web. We finish each others' sentences. He's a frequent contributor here. PS: I got my Qube from Doc.
