back to article Microsoft says Skype outages are over – a few hours too early

Business / Product Plan

1. See successful P2P product developed by new thinkers totally out of range of the corporate thinking of a huge corporation

2. By product to make original developers very rich but maybe not so happy as they thought they would be. (get up Monday morning. Check bank account. Wonder what to today. Meh)

3. Change product to to fit into big corporate view of world (fill in blank for motivation). Watch product crash and burn. It takes a long time but once the rot sets in.... OK . Stumble and smoulder. The difference is one of timing.

4. Next product.

Once, Skype was different. Now........

Perhaps you've all moved to Slack or Zoom already.
