software out there (read it before it goes to $$)
This article presents the power of networked and collaborative software development (mashups if you will). It speaks to the use of skype phone calls through the salesforce.com software, changes in the Microsoft business model (Live), and the reaction of adobe to ajax.
The software world has changed. No longer is the power in tying up the resources, instead it has migrated to the utility of putting componenets together. Amazon is even trying to do its part by renting disk storage (15 cents per gig, per month if you are interersted).
When reflecting on the article, the case competition judges would have realized the possibilities and strengths of the MIT suggestion.
If they couldn't put it together for themselves, the article would have helped them out by mentioning independently written software that will run on a cell phone.
