HeĀ opened with a round of chanting ‘Partner, Partners, Partners!’ before settling down to give a good 20 minute talk on the direction for the company. At the Q&A he refused to be drawn on the Yahoo deal / non-deal, andĀ said that he’s motivated by challenges when asked how he can take over the role filled by Bill Gates for so long. He also explained how Microsoft will stay a tech company but that he does see advertising as aĀ developing and complementary revenue stream…. though integration between MS products / services and advertising will of course be handled carefully

Anyway, back to another session…Ā
