Bill Gates warns Silicon Valley not to be the new Microsoft — Quartz
Bill Gates warns Silicon Valley not to be the new Microsoft http://ift.tt/2G9NNlO Prospective http://ift.tt/2GcKmuN February 13, 2018 at 07:36PM

Microsoft founder Bill Gates has a message for Silicon Valley: Don’t be Microsoft.

In the 1990s, the Seattle software giant became enemy number one for the US anti-trust regulators. Flexing its market muscle, the software giant elbowed out potential software and hardware competitors. Briefly, Microsoft became one the most valuable companies of all time, but ultimately regulators clipped its wings, forcing it to curb aggressive practices in new markets eventually claimed by the likes of Google, Intuit, and Facebook.

Today, tech giants such as Facebook and Google have been put on notice, Gates said in an interview with Axios. “The companies need to be careful that they’re not … advocating things that would prevent government from being able to, under appropriate review, perform the type of functions that we’ve come to count on,” he said. When asked if he says that happening now, he replied, “Oh, absolutely.”

Microsoft’s own battle with regulators lasted 21 years. It narrowly avoided being split up after using its Windows operating system to smother competing products on the web like Netscape’s Navigator. Regulators extracted a consent decree that forced Microsoft to makes its products compatible with other products, and not shut out potential competitors.

More dramatic, however, was the change in company culture. “Since the antitrust suit, they have become much more cautious and much less aggressive,” observed Michael Cusumano, a professor at MIT Sloan School of Management, in 2011. Only recently has Microsoft found its footing in the new technology landscape.

Gates warned that Silicon Valley’s freewheeling libertarianism, a successful strategy when tech companies were insurgents, won’t fly at the scale of Google, Facebook, and Amazon. He singled out payments as a sore spot: “The tech companies have to be … careful that they’re not trying to think their view is more important than the government’s view, or than the government being able to function in some key areas,” he said, noting the Valley’s penchant enthusiasm for “making financial transactions anonymous and invisible, and their view that even a clear mass-murdering criminal’s communication should never be available to the government.”

[silk] Barlow's principles of adult behaviour
PRINCIPLES OF ADULT BEHAVIOR

1. Be patient. No matter what.
2. Don't badmouth:
Assign responsibility, never blame.
Say nothing behind another's back you'd be unwilling to say,
in exactly the same tone and language, to his face.
3. Never assume the motives of others are, to them, less noble
than yours are to you.
4. Expand your sense of the possible.
5. Don't trouble yourself with matters you truly cannot change.
6. Expect no more of anyone than you yourself can deliver.
7. Tolerate ambiguity.
8. Laugh at yourself frequently.
9. Concern yourself with what is right rather than whom is right.
10. Never forget that, no matter how certain, you might be wrong.
11. Give up blood sports.
12. Remember that your life belongs to others as well. Do not
endanger it frivolously. And never endanger the life of another.
13. Never lie to anyone for any reason.
14. Learn the needs of those around you and respect them.
15. Avoid the pursuit of happiness. Seek to define your mission
and pursue that.
16. Reduce your use of the first personal pronoun.
17. Praise at least as often as you disparage.
18. Never let your errors pass without admission.
19. Become less suspicious of joy.
20. Understand humility.
21 Forgive.
22. Foster dignity.
23. Live memorably.
24. Love yourself.
25. Endure.
