Business @ the Speed of Thought: Succeeding in the Digital Economy

tags: bill-gates

This is Gate’s second book, four years after “The Road Ahead…”

Like that book, it’s an exercise in vision-casting, though it’s directed to business leaders and how the internet is going to change business. Each chapter covers a different aspect of business, and ends with a checklist of major points, and questions to ask yourself about your business environment.

This didn’t seem as revolutionary as “The Road Ahead” and I’m not sure why. I think it was just more obvious how the business aspects of the internet were going to play out? Both then and now.

I did find the phrase “The Web Lifestyle” pretty funny though. Lots of neat ideas about how to “live the Web lifestyle.” Those were the days…
