Kaliya, Identity Woman, says that to Microsoft we are just customers. “It seems to me that their language regarding those of us who use their stuff – customers. Individuals who buy stuff most notably not creators.”

Very astute. Of course I don’t think Bill Gates will be able to ignore that MySpace announced (at Mix06) that they had just passed MSN and are now in the #2 spot on most popular Web sites.

It’s real fun watching the reactions coming through about Mix06 over on Technorati. Marc Canter, of course, asked the first audience question about open standards. You can see what everyone says about Marc Canter on blogs too.

It’s funny, we create our own content here too. On10.net today Duncan MacKenzie shows how to use an iPod and a PSP to watch its content. Huh? What’s going on here? Someone is gonna get fired. Or not.

Lots of photos from Mix are up on Flickr too.

Someday we’ll all realize that the cool stuff on the Web is two-way.

Oh, and wait until I start doing demos of Second Life to Microsofties. One inch at a time. One inch at a time.
