web 2.0 for development

Bill is “behind” but is far ahaed!

Summer time is such a good moment to spend time reading. I just read John Battelle’s book, “The search” and I found out that there is a man who invented so many interesting things that I couldn’t believe. I’m talking about Bill Gross. He is a great guy, he is a mind. Most of the innovations shown up by Google in their business model were invented by Bill in his exceptional experience of Overture, the company he founded and sold to Yahoo.

Now Bill is still around the Internet with his former company, IdeaLab, an incubator that produced things like Picasa and snap.

I think it is very important to recognize these kind of people to distinguish who DOES things from who talks.
