Robert Scoble says the reason bloggers and journalists don't write about enterprise software is because it isn't sexy, and doesn't generate page views...which drives revenues. He is right. Bill Gates says "The business computing market, which is way bigger than the consumer computing market, no one pays attention to it. Even in the Wall Street Journal, and you think, oh, this is the paper they're going to tell me about business computing; no, it's all about consumer computing."
To which I say - Consumer web stuff makes sexy headlines, but enterprise software makes great bottom lines. In business bottom lines matter. Given a choice between fame and fortune...I would take the fortune and leave the headline fame to others. Bill Gates has plenty of both. Maybe it is respect he is looking for. Hey Bill, you have plenty of respect too.
Must be a slow news day for bloggers. Get a life guys. Hey, the New England Patriots just crushed the Steelers. And I am going to the Patriots - Jets game next week! Now that is living! Have a great weekend!
