FORTUNE magazine has a very interesting article on Microsoft's new brain -
Brutal competition. A stock going nowhere. Microsoft is in crisis, so Bill Gates has unleashed his new hire, software genius Ray Ozzie, to remake the company - and conquer the Web.

Work with us to shape the future of Groove and Office.
The Groove usability group is conducting product research in the New England region. The team is recruiting a mix of IT Administrators with experience deploying the Groove and current end-users of the Groove product (version 2.5 or later).
Learn about the new version of Groove and how it can help you collaborate more effectively. Activities involved in this research include an on-site visit, usage of Groove Beta 2 over a four week period and one wrap-up session.
This is a unique opportunity to get hands-on experience with the next generation of Groove and its features. Each participant will receive a combination of gift cards and software/hardware items depending on level of participation. Initial sessions are scheduled at your convenience May 15th and June 3rd.
For more information, please contact Derek St.Laurent at 425-722-0574 between the hours of 7:00am and 4:00pm PST, or e-mail at email@example.com.
