The Subscription Economy's Maturation


A lot happens in a decade. Bill Gates once said that we overestimate what we can do in two years and underestimate what we can do in 10. 2017 is a particularly good time to stop paddling and look back at what’s been going on in the last decade. While we will all have our favorite memories, there’s one in CRM that stands out more than others for me. After all, 2007 was the year of the iPhone, as well as the year before everything in the financial world began going down in a big way. There was barely any social media to speak of.

GV's Bill Maris Passes Torch to Krane


GV founder Bill Maris on Wednesday said that he was departing the company after an eight-year tenure, and that his replacement would be David Krane, a managing partner and one of his chief deputies at the Alphabet-owned venture capital firm. Krane is a 17-year Google veteran. Maris reportedly wanted to spend more time with his wife and 11-month-old son.

Bill Gates' Open Letter


It has been 40 years since Bill Gates wrote his open letter to the software industry complaining that computer hobbyists were stealing his BASIC program. That was so long ago that Wikipedia has a picture of the source code for “Micro-Soft” BASIC on paper tape. A lot of things have changed since then. In the 1970s when Microsoft was getting started, it was common for people to copy, swap or donate software simply because they could. Especially in the hobbyist community, people bought hardware and they got software in any way possible.
