The Gillmor Gang — Doc Searls, Robert Scoble, Kevin Marks, and Steve Gillmor — takes turns sizing up the new season. With Steve Ballmer running out of room and close to the warning track, we talk about who might be called up from the minors. The consensus is that Steve has 18 months to tur n things around. He’s a proud man, though, and may make the big move to Emeritus sooner than too late.
Dave Winer is back with a nifty pivot on Google Reader’s trip to the showers. The Gillmor Gang rode RSS and podcasting to the Big Show, and it’s good to see Dave going even further back to his outliner roots. More than anything, Winer made the hard stuff look easy and gave the tech generation a voice. Today it seems obvious, but Winer, with a little help from his friends, changed the way the game is played. Batter up.
