The Internet - The first Worldwide Tool of Unification ("The End of History")

" ... Now I give you something that few think about: What do you think the Internet is all about, historically? Citizens of all the countries on Earth can talk to one another without electronic borders. The young people of those nations can all see each other, talk to each other, and express opinions. No matter what the country does to suppress it, they're doing it anyway. They are putting together a network of consciousness, of oneness, a multicultural consciousness. It's here to stay. It's part of the new energy. The young people know it and are leading the way.... "

" ... I gave you a prophecy more than 10 years ago. I told you there would come a day when everyone could talk to everyone and, therefore, there could be no conspiracy. For conspiracy depends on separation and secrecy - something hiding in the dark that only a few know about. Seen the news lately? What is happening? Could it be that there is a new paradigm happening that seems to go against history?... " Read More …. "The End of History"- Nov 20, 2010 (Kryon channelled by Lee Carroll)

Have you seen innovation and invention in the past decade that required thinking out of the box of an old reality? Indeed, you have. I can't tell you what's coming, because you haven't thought of it yet! But the potentials of it are looming large. Let me give you an example, Let us say that 20 years ago, you predicted that there would be something called the Internet on a device you don't really have yet using technology that you can't imagine. You will have full libraries, buildings filled with books, in your hand - a worldwide encyclopedia of everything knowable, with the ability to look it up instantly! Not only that, but that look-up service isn't going to cost a penny! You can call friends and see them on a video screen, and it won't cost a penny! No matter how long you use this service and to what depth you use it, the service itself will be free.

Now, anyone listening to you back then would perhaps have said, "Even if we can believe the technological part, which we think is impossible, everything costs something. There has to be a charge for it! Otherwise, how would they stay in business?" The answer is this: With new invention comes new paradigms of business. You don't know what you don't know, so don't decide in advance what you think is coming based on an old energy world. ..."

Washington — Microsoft rebooted itself for a mobile future Tuesday, naming Indian-born Satya Nadella as its chief executive while founder Bill Gates sheds his title of chairman for a more hands-on role.

Gates "will devote more time to the company" on the board as "founder and technology advisor," the company said.

Nadella, 46, who becomes the third CEO at Microsoft, has been executive vice president of its "Cloud and Enterprise group."

The moves come with Microsoft losing ground to rivals like Apple and Google amid a shift away from the traditional personal computer to mobile devices and cloud services.

Nadella marked his promotion by reaching out to employees, partners and customers with a vow to put the company's software at the heart of changing Internet lifestyles.

"We are living in a cloud-first, mobile-first world," Nadella said in a webcast.

"That is the world we are building for, and all of this is going to be mediated by software."

His battle plan includes luring users to Microsoft's Surface tablets, Xbox videogame consoles, and Windows-powered mobile phones from Nokia.

Microsoft's acquisition of Nokia is expected to be finalized in coming months.

As people increasingly use the same smartphones or tablets at work and at home, Microsoft must bridge the two worlds with software that gives companies security they crave, Nadella said.

He said his first priority as chief will be to meet with employees, customers, partners and investors since, despite his 22 years at the company, "there is still a lot to learn."

He vowed to focus on what Microsoft is uniquely positioned to do.

"As the industry changes we have to innovate and move forward," 58-year-old Gates said in a video released on the Microsoft website.

"I'm thrilled that Satya has asked me to step up."

He called Nadella "a proven leader with hard-core engineering skills, business vision and the ability to bring people together."

Gates stepped down as CEO in 2000 and left day-to-day operations in 2008 to devote more time to his multibillion-dollar Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Nadella takes over from the retiring Steve Ballmer.

"The opportunity ahead for Microsoft is vast, but to seize it, we must focus clearly, move faster and continue to transform," Nadella said.

The shake-up at Microsoft drew positive responses from analysts.

"I think this is a terrific development for the company," said Greg Sterling at Opus Research.

Nadella is a more humble and understated figure than Ballmer, which bodes well for Microsoft's image, and has a strong mix of business and technology expertise, the analyst added.

Frank Gillett at Forrester Research was encouraged by Nadella's apparent willingness "to shake things up."

Gillett added that by using Gates as a key advisor, Nadella is tapping into the Microsoft co-founders winning experiences while signalling a new era by keeping him in an informal role.

Deutsche Bank analyst Karl Keirstead said Nadella was a "good choice."

"Although Microsoft is a big ship to turn, in our view Nadella will push to make Microsoft more innovative and agile, more like Apple and less like IBM," Keirstead said in a research note.

Matthew Hedberg at RBC Capital Markets called Nadella "a safe choice" and said his background "could mean a bigger emphasis on cloud and enterprise than Microsoft has had in the past."

Hedberg added that the shift in roles for Gates would be a "bigger positive for investor sentiment."

Microsoft shares closed down 13 cents or 0.36 percent to $36.35.

Nadella heads the team that runs the public, private and service provider clouds for Microsoft. Previously, Nadella was president of Microsoft's $19 billion server and tools business.

He is a native of Hyderabad, India and earned degrees from Mangalore University, the University of Wisconsin in Milwaukee and the University of Chicago.
