CrunchWeek: Ballmer’s Classy Exit, Our Picks From YC’s Demo Day, And The Gold iPhone

The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, Dan Farber, Kevin Marks, Doc Searls, and Steve Gillmor — digest the resignation of Steve Ballmer and its potential impact on the direction of the Post-PC Era. Whether he was pushed by Bill Gates or what, it’s clear something changed in the last few days. Just how or who can do better will soon be apparent, as Ballmer’s lame duck term has been accelerated by a cheering Wall Street.

Below the fold but no less an aftereffect of the Microsoft decline is the continuing story of the Social App Revolution, as Al Jazeera struggles with the transition to mobile, @dsearls laments the threat to the 4th Amendment, and as Moe Glitz puts it in the chat: Apple is The Beatles. Google is The Stones and Microsoft are The Monkees.
