How many people read Wired magazine again?
So, do you invite one developer? Great, that might mean one app.
Or do you invite a journalist who’ll write and talk with, say, 100 developers? (I have a feeling a lot more than 100 developers read Wired magazine).
Which one is a better decision for Microsoft as a business?
Which one is better for Microsoft’s ecosystem? How many apps will one decision get done over another?
I see at least four journalists who got invited to be on Microsoft’s stage. Why did they get invited over someone like Fred?
Oh, and if you think this is just about Wired magazine, Fred was on CNBC last week. So his reach is more than just Wired.
