Listening to Vijay Gurbaxani is always an enriching experience. At the Microsoft Leadership Conclave he spoke about the “Consumerization of IT”.

Here are some excerpts from his talk.

Social Media, Twitter and Facebook, has been at the forefront of the movement towards democracy in Egypt. When Twitter was banned by the government in Egypt, engineers from Google and Twitter created a new service called Speak-2-Tweet, which helped Egyptians tweet using voice connections.

Technology is emerging as a decentralizing and democratizing force.

“If Social Media can democratize a country, you better believe it can democratize your company.”
