Quote of the morning

Quote of the morning: (From Fred Wilson) “I could care less about 10,000 fonts, tracking changes, macros, and all the other features and functions that Microsoft has piled into Word over the past 20 years. I simply care about being able to write from wherever I am and make it available to whomever I want via the web. That is the single most important feature to me that trumps everything else.”

Personal observation: While I have no idea whether Google Spreadsheets is any “threat” to Microsoft Excel, I agree with Fred on this: More and more, I’m drawn to simple web applications that I can access from any computer — with a few core functions that are (to quote a long-ago Fred term) “drop-dead simple” to understand and use.
