Very candid conversation with marshall Phelps, corporate VP and deputy general counsel at Microsoft. Very frank, straight talker. Great honesty about the end of the os and about google’s advantages and challenges.

Talking about “web 3.0” at Red Herring East today. That’s a tough topic. Good panel:

Moderator: Joel Dreyfuss, Editor-in-Chief, Red Herring
Michael Jones, Co-Founder and CEO, Userplane
Sim Simeonov, Technology Partner, Polaris Venture Partners
Carol McGarry, Executive Vice President and Creative Director, Schwartz Communications
Marc Davis, Social Media Guru, Yahoo

Unfortunately it never really seemed to go beyond identifying and defining what Web 2.0 is. I just don’t think we’ve seen enough of Web 2.0 to clearly say what it is, we’re still in the Web 2.0 tween years, in my opinion. IMHO, Web 3.0 will have much much more to do with a) mobile and b) virtual.

I liked listening to Marc – he’s vocal, and he’s bold.

Red Herring East 2007 – Do you Golf?

Bob and I are attending the Red Herring East 2007 conference. If you can make it, please do! It’s here in Boston, in late June, and should be a heck of a time.

Also, they are looking for a few more golfers for a tournament, on the 26th. They’re a little short right now. If you plan to attend and are interested in participating in the tourney, contact Oliver Hanisch at 1.650.585.3444.
