Missing end of the sentence/interview:
Now that Windows 8 has been released, what are you and your team doing now?
We didn’t really slow down. There are always new technologies to think about that can be helpful to people.
.... we are going to carefully avoid them and invent something else that will further slow down or harass people, continuing the tradition I instated with the Office ribbon.
As an example, with the current release of the Surface, based on Windows RT, I insisted on finally removing support for macros, that noone - according to our telemetry - actually used in Office. They are, or I should say were, a big issue because people often needed to think to write one of those, or even to simply use it, and we all know how thinking is something that is really really tiring. When I stopped thinking (this happened around 2001, but I was planning this since 2000) I found much more time to do useful things, you know like resizing (crappy) pictures of my sons on the screen, adding to them witty text to use them as Christmas cards, the kind of stuff that everyone should actually do and that is obviously much easier to do with fingers on a touch screen that with a mouse, let alone with a pen and graphic tablet.
Sometimes I am amazed that still exist people in the word that use computer to work, this is evidently a cognitive error, a computer, as the other named after a vegetable company that I won't directly name has proved, is all about doing the seven good things in life:
At least this is what I do all day long, and if you are done with the interview, I have to tweet about how witty I was in answering the pre-made questions you asked with what my ghostwriter came up with, once reviewed by the PCRT (Politically correct review team), please write also how I was completely sincere in my answers, specifically these words come from the bottom of my heart:
- modifying (crappy) images of your sons and relatives and sending them to everyone
- mailing (senseless) one liners to everyone in the company every five to ten minutes
- twitting at least ten times a day
- browsing funny sites on the internet and send the jokes or funny images found there to everyone you know, possibly by mass-mailing them so that everyone gets the full list of your contacts
- playing games such as angry birds
- posting your wisdom on Facebook
- chatting with people through VOIP or texting them
Your predecessor, Steven Sinofsky, was widely credited with driving Microsoft to create Windows 8 through sheer force of will. Is that true?
Steven is an amazing leader and an amazing brain and an amazing person, but one person can’t do everything. It’s really about the team that we created and the culture that we created for innovation.
Too bad that the space on that page wasn't enough to contain these last statements...
