Bill Gates On Twitter, But What About Steve?

January 21, 2010

As of yesterday, Bill Gates has officially begun Tweeting his thoughts to the world.

When I first learned of his Twitter account, 50% of his Tweets were directed to Ryan Seacrest.

Yeah right. I am pretty sure Mr. Gates and Mr. Seacrest speak often.

In the Noise Age, he who gets attention wins.

How much long will it take before the real Steve Ballmer starts Tweeting?

The following are some gems  from Ballmer’s acceptance speech via the Guardian.Co.Uk

All content consumed will be digital, we can [only] debate if that may be in one, two, five or 10 years.

There won’t be [only traditional]newspapers, magazines and TV programs.

There won’t be [only] personal, social communications offline and separate.

In 10 years it will all be online.

Static content won’t cut it in the future.

Some say that the ad-funded model has not led to profitability. Google’s search site makes money but past Google is there a publisher with an ad-funded or fee-based model that has made lots of money? No.

And finally a definitive response from Steve Ballmer regarding Microsoft’s interest in buying Yahoo:

We have no interest in acquiring Yahoo. What we have said is that we will continue to remain open to a partnership with Yahoo.

Steve Ballmer Egged On Literally

May 19, 2008

From CNET News:

No not like Mr. Ballmer needs any additional encouragement leading Microsoft the world’s largest software company.

He was quite literally egged; as in “eggs thrown at” during a speech at a Hungarian University.

Europeans… first a pie in Bill Gates face and now eggs hurled at Steve Ballmer.

What will they think of next?
