Questions for Steve and Bill: The D Attendees Arrive

While Walt and I will come up with our own questions for Microsoft’s Bill Gates and Apple’s Steve Jobs, who will be appearing in an historic joint interview at our D conference tomorrow night, I was curious what others–some tech folks and some not in the industry–would ask the tech legends if they could in this post.

With the conference starting tonight, D attendees are dribbling in, so I took the opportunity to ask some of the early arrivals (some poolside) their queries for Gates and Jobs.

Here are: Blake Krikorian, founder of Sling Media; Presto’s Joe Beninato; singer/songwriter Jill Sobule; PR mavens Brooke Hammerling and Donna Sokolsky; and Paul Steiger, who retired recently as managing editor of The Wall Street Journal (his new title is editor at large).

Social media tools are the latest in a long line of time-stealers in the workplace, following in the footsteps of March Madness brackets, afternoon golf games, morning water cooler gossip or cigarette breaks. But social media like Twitter and Facebook are more visible from a distance (of both time and space), so they are easier to criticize and quantify.
