Microsoft memos calling for action are leaked

By Derek Sooman on
Some internal Microsoft memos have been leaked, possibly as a publicity stunt. The memos call for action, highlighting concerns over loss of technology leadership and the need for renewed action. Dated last month and sent to senior staff, one memo by Microsoft chief technical officer Ray Ozzie said that the company had failed to achieve leadership in key areas of internet technology. There is also a second leaked memo by Bill Gates.

By way of an introduction to Ozzie's memo Gates stated that Microsoft is facing a "sea change" and predicts, somewhat ironically, that Ozzie's call to action will be as important as the memo Gates wrote five years ago which warned of an "internet tidal wave".
