I also really like the virtual-company aspect of it, how teams all over the world come together based on shared interests. You have this selection process of people who want to work together. That to me is a lot better than interviewing people, looking at resumes, and deciding if a person is going to work out. It's a different approach to building a business."
The above quote from John Battelle's interview with Toni Schneider really registered. It is something more established organisations have yet to learn. In any gold rush the seller of picks and shovels have always been the real winners. As a user and fan of WordPress Toni's move from Yahoo to WordPress looks like a very wise one from where I'm sitting. Interesting times indeed.
