[Cartoon part of the Microsoft Blue Monster Series. Backstory from Steve and Kris etc.]

One of the ideas I've been playing around with the Microsoft Partner Group is- the idea of "crossing the chasm".

i.e. Crossing the chasm between tinkering away with a neat new idea in your garage, vs taking the idea and turning it into a viable long-term business.

i.e. Crossing the chasm between "Idea" and "Execution". That is where the bodies pile up etc.

And maybe, just maybe, Microsoft is a better option for making this crossing than Linux. Maybe not in all instances, but maybe for the guy who they're trying to sell a package to, oh yes they are.

This cartoon was kinda me thinking along those lines...

Microsoft does a great job now supporting it's Partners, even Solo Businessmen like myself.

I can't wait to see how you can expand that level of support even further.

Kind of ashamed I haven't run across this blog before, subscribed and looking forward to future posts. Cheers!

NEWSFLASH - This is what partners have been doing for many years (in our case, 10 years). We're still doing it and still attracting blue chip clients with core line of business development. Maybe less sexy than stuff 2.0 but crucial for customers' businesses.
