From today's Wall St Journal [subscription required] :
"Microsoft also appointed a highly regarded computer scientist to oversee each of three new divisions' shift to more network-based methods of distribution. The executive, Ray Ozzie, joined Microsoft when it bought his company Groove Networks earlier this year. Mr. Ozzie -- who in the 1980s developed the hugely influential Lotus Notes collaboration software for Lotus Corp., now part of International Business Machines Corp. -- will report to Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates. Mr. Ballmer said he wants Mr. Ozzie to put in place a broad "foundation" for making all software available as a service across Microsoft."
