Gillmor Gang: Interdependence Day

Next Story

Why Oracle And Salesforce, Once Bitter Rivals, Are Now On Cloud Nine

The Gillmor Gang — John Borthwick, Robert Scoble, Kevin Marks, Keith Teare, and Steve Gillmor — marvel at the mutually assured creation of a partnership between Larry Ellison’s Oracle and Marc Benioff’s Salesforce.com. Few would have predicted such a stunning partnership just a few years ago, but the crescendoing intersection of cloud, social, and mobile has borne sudden fruit.

The only constant is change. Google Reader’s demise gives way to @borthwick’s Digg Reader, seeds @scobleizer’s Flipboard magazines, and tracks the proliferation of a shiny new red Glass to replace Robert’s original accessory. Managing the tweet notifications can quickly overrun the Twitter for Glass app, but we’re living in a material world where the innovation surge of the last few years is now ripe for absorbing. Gentle men and women, start your engines.
