MICROSOFT SPINNING OUT WALLOP
So Microsoft is spinning out Wallop, which is cool. Karl Jacobs, a serial entrepreneur, will be the CEO of this new entity. What's cooler is that I wrote about how Wallop should be opened for business along with some other suggestions last February :)
Anyway, TechCrunch has a review and so does Om.
Microsoft's Don Dodge has some inside news about how this is part of a new Microsoft initiative, Microsoft IP Ventures, to license their technology to interested parties, which is similar to what large research universities do.
