But, seriously, folks...

Who's strong enough to make Microsoft keep a secret?


From comments to this:

portuno_diamo :

These are from a "cloud manifesto" on wikipedia:

1. User centric systems enrich the lives of individuals; education, communication, collaboration, business, entertainment and society as a whole.

2. Philanthropic initiatives can greatly increase the well-being of mankind.

3. Openness of standards, systems and software empowers and protects users.

4. Transparency fosters trust and accountability; decisions should be open to public collaboration and scrutiny and never be made "behind closed doors".

5. Interoperability ensures effectiveness of cloud computing as a public resource; systems must be interoperable.

6. Representation of all stakeholders is essential; interoperability and standards efforts should not be dominated by vendor(s).

7. Discrimination against any party for any reason is unacceptable.

8. Evolution is an ongoing process in an immature market; standards may take some time to develop and coalesce.

9. Balance of commercial and consumer interests is paramount.

10. Security is fundamental, not optional.

As reported by Mary Jo Foley, a Microsoft representative won't comment on whether these points are in the top-secret "cloud manifesto" Microsoft has been asked to sign.

I thought everybody said nobody can keep a secret?

What kind of power is behind a document that prevents Microsoft’s Senior Director of Development Platform Management Steven Martin from speaking?

One would have to ask Steve Ballmer which of these 10 tenets Microsoft finds so onerous. There seem to be quite a few in there that have run counter to Microsoft's demonstrated way of doing things, so I would have to say "all the above".

I would caution Mister Ballmer to use a rare better judgment and sign what he can see.

It's the things one can't see that end up bringing nightmares into the barn.

And some wondered why I kept inquiring as to the whereabouts of Master Rastamafoo... The guy is a genius!... and one of the reasons I decided to become a stockholding newbie of VCSY!

From Orange to Albaturkey they traveled 'cross the broilin' highways of Texas and West in search of lost love and luxury. 'Norman? Norman, baby. When you gonna be my man?' 'Not never Samantha Sue. I gotta find myself out yonder in California. It's the land of endchantment and I here people bend over so you can sign the record deals on they's backs. It's the promise land for a artist such as I.' 'Oh Norman your intelligence is so sexy. You just drive me wild with all your philosophy and... ' 'No Samantha Sue. Don't touch my guitar.  I'm trying to stay pure to my art.' 'But, Norman, the neck on this guitar is where your hands have been. And you make so much art with those fingers of yours. I just want them...'


Yes ma'am.

'Samantha Sue! You're making this way too hard to deal with.' 'Oh Norman, nothing between us could ever be too hard. We got our doublewide and each other. That is... if'n you'll let it stay hitched to your towbar, driver. Know what I mean?' *dap doop de duuuhhhhhh* Will Samantha Sue find her lonely path to love's embrace? Will Norman get to pick a pasty any higher than a minor g? Tune in tomorrow when Bob's Bilge Bubbles brings you 'Hot Wheels on the I-10'. *brrrrrrrppp dap doop dee dop do duhhhhhh whaaaaaaaaaa dibity doooo do bop doop dee doop dwee do booooo dah dah duhhh...

Jilly don't sit so close to the TV. In fact turn that off and go watch Baby Joe. Mister Silverberg's getting off work in a couple minutes and they got Baby Joe out there under a one by six jumping they's bikes off him. Make sure they get him out of the street before Mister Silverberg gets here cause you remember last time Mister Silverberg hanged up his differential on one of them one bys it launched him clean out of that convertible right up in the sycamore on Miss Hazel's yard. It took me three gasoline rags out of your daddy's shop to get that grease off Baby Joe's little tummy. Poor little thang.

And Jilly... no bricks.

Actually, Beach,

The day VCSY hits a dollar the volume will be well over 20 million shares and there will be thousands of investors buying VCSY on that day.

My friends will say to me, "Why didn't you tell me about this stock?"

Actually I got fed up with having them snigger at me years ago when I recommended VCSY when it was selling for less than a cent. Once over two years ago I bought 270,000 shares in an AON bid at a half-cent after it took three days to fill. That was the "ask" price then.

I've mentioned before about the guy who TOLD ME about VCSY in January of 2000. He bought quite a few shares but a little over a year ago he sold them all because he did not like the way they made his portfolio value unstable. He looks at his portfolio value several times a day. I look at my portfolio value several times a year so I don't notice the fluctuation.

Next week this good friend will be crying in his beer but it won’t bother me. I’ve suggested several times that he buy back in. I’ve told him everything that is going on with the Company. Lately I have been telling him about the coming trial. Now I am telling him that the trial is nearly over.

He doesn’t care; it messes up his bottom line. I really think he may have a touch of Alzheimer’s disease now. What excuse do the bashers have?

Another unsolicited testimony of courteous contentment with the pronouncements and directions indicated. How refreshing. Kind of like a stickup you don't mind to have shoved up your nose.

Name: "Does that make me crazy?"

I like it here, it gives me the feeling that I'm not crazy, or maybe I am but that I have some company just like me.  I keep telling people poop has hit the fan and we're gonna clean it up with little vcsy but no one at least if I'm in here with you guys nobody can give me dirty looks for trying to show them a little light.  See......?  I feel the internet is tired and needs a lift, or maybe someone needs to kick the extra weight off so we can all function properly and drink and be merry with the possibility of the way things can be, without corporate culture holding small companies and people down because they have resource and we don't have access, but not anymore my friend, time has come to extend the power and favor to everyone else so we can all work with equal strength to so what we're all really capable of.  VCSY is the quantum field of the internet, unifying everything so we can understand and function more harmoniously.  I'm read something of Hermetics, "Man is not at all different from his creator"  not "Man should bow down to his creator".   VCSY is just the technological analogy of Hermetics for me.  Grant the small parts equal strength and everything has purpose and place, and everything is in harmony that way and in this unity there is no push comes to shove anymore, because after all who's pushing and who's shoving at that point?  Its an idea whos time has come, and rightfully so, MS and others have been c:!###ing things up for years (c:!######### many moons) with their bull$#!@ ethics, thats its time to see what the little people can do when you give them their god given right for freedom and power to create.  Its like the common genius, connect yourself to something greater and make yourself equal to god, and the truth is we're one in the same.


Whilst I can understand and agree in principle with the Oprah's Secret Path in us all I must stand up for the almighty who I'm sure has his feelings abused about right now.

'Lo and behold I cometh quickly and any cracker don't have a bonnet better get a bucket.'

 Nevertheless thanks for the stream of consciousness and the opinion graciously allocated bandwidth - the management

And to think I held a finger over the button to oblivion as I perused your comment. And then I deigned to grant it residence for all backup eternity in electronic form. And no doubt you pushed the buttons and all. Did real good until you had to go recruit troops to the dark side. Oh well. Life is lumpy and light is good. Better have some in the neighborhood. Cuz GrumpyGod is coming to town.
