The Economist Gets It Right: After Bill

Print journalism is still hanging in there. Ludwig Siegele has a great article about Bill Gates' departure from Microsoft in the latest edition of the Economist. It's the most balanced presentation of the problems and opportunities in front of Microsoft I have seen in quite some time.

For those of you who don't follow the Economist regularly, Ludwig is one of the top technical journalists at the magazine. He covered Silicon Valley during the dot-com bubble and is now working on a book that promises to be pretty interesting. Meanwhile, I hope he has time to keep cranking out more articles on technology like this one.
