Microsoft PM has Web 'Aha' moment

Dare has an interesting Aha moment - directly and indirectly courtesy of The Web.

Put more succintly, a technology doesn't have to solve every problem just enough problems to be useful. Two examples come to mind which hammered this home to me; Tim Berners-Lee's World Wide Web and collaborative filtering which sites like Amazon use.

I love how with one simple phrase the global, open-ended, all-encompassing Web is minimized by assigning ownership to TimBL. I predict still more Aha moments ahead for the young Redmond Jedi.
