Recently I had the opportunity to read the book Who Moved my Cheese by Spencer Johnson. The book is a great tale about how people respond to change and how with a simple paradigm shift in our thinking we can relish the change and use it to our advantage.
We sure need to deal with change these days. I recently attended a training camp at Microsoft. The staff of Microsoft was humorously self effacing when discussing how long Microsoft has sat on some of its browser editions, thus holding up new web standards. They vowed to move forward with faster, better deployment of new versions of IE and new webtools.
And we'll see if they keep the promise with a release of IE 10. We are promised cleaner, faster, brighter, better. Better cheese.
