Three search engines will jockey for ad placement in the network: Google, Yahoo and Microsoft. What'll the leaderboard look like in 2010?
What's core competence? what's the competence at the periphery? what's core now could become periperal tomorrow. What's peripheral now could become core tomorrow. Welcome to the Network Era.

Dell--AMD Link (AMD Inside Dell?)
Probably not. It appears that we will see Dell with AMD inside in 2006.
IBM chips on Microsoft Xbox 360
Intel inside the new MacBookPro with ads showing that Intel is finally set free.
Dell with AMD--a departure from the historical reliance on Intel (Dell is Intel's biggest customer).
Orchestrating a successful network-era strategy often calls for realigning relationships. Both Dell and AMD are jockeying to reposition themselves in the network.

Google's new Partnerships in 2006 (just the first week!)
Strategy 2.0 is about orchestrating relationships in networks. Google is jockeying in the network to become a powerful competitor to Microsoft. 2006 should be an interesting year!.

Clearly, I expect that by the end of 2006, many more corporate blogs will be online (can you imagine any of the Fortune 500 companies without a website today?).
Blogs raise many questions that are worth pondering. What will be covered in those blogs? will it become a secondary PR channel or will it provide new insights into the company operations? Who will read those blogs--competitors or suppliers or cutsomers? or is it meant for journalists and general observers? will we see Wall Street analysts making stock recommendations based on what they read in the blogs or will they continue to rely on company presentations? Will mainstream media replace Letters to the Editors with comments on the blogs? will blogs become elaborate versions of the articles that may be limited in size due to page limitations of the print media??
