Great quote from Tim O'Reilly (thanks to Gluejar @ Go to Hellman) for reporting on this:
To me, you gotta care about something more than preserving your business. Because, obviously companies have made these types of transitions, and this is just my personal response. We're all gonna die one day anyway and we'll lose all our stuff. So don't worry too much about it. Just do something that lights you up, and lights up your customers, and lights up the world and scale to that. Because what's going to happen is people who are lit up by the future are going to be pursuing that future, and the people who hold onto the past are going to hold on too long. - Tim O'Reilly (interview, 29 Sep 2010)
