John Battelle Rants on Microsoft

John has a few thoughts about Microsoft:

“Microsoft is a middle aged company struggling to figure out how to dance with the teenagers, and its body simply can’t keep up with its intentions, no matter how correct they may be. I’m not claiming “Microsoft doesn’t get it” – in fact, I very much think it does. I’m saying that structurally, the company is not capable of executing on what it knows it must do. Major projects like Live, Search, and MSN need to compete in the same market ecosystem as Google, Yahoo, and the startups. As it stands now, they can’t.”

That’s just a small peice, go read the whole thing and be sure to check out the comments.
