  1. Paul, love your thinking here, simple yet breakthrough. It reminds me of GrandCentral, which flamed out in 2005. If I get your drift here, why couldn’t CIOs set standards and open “app” development at the edges to developers? All they have to do is redefine their stable of enterprise systems as a platform, set standards, etc., as you suggest. All platforms do this; they decide what’s core for their purposes (and proprietary), what to lock down, but open the edges to crowdsourcing. I was chief marketer for GC’s first midwest partner in 2004-05; they claimed the world’s largest repository of (enterprise) web services. Orgs with robust enterprise architecture would be well positioned to do this, and they could theoretically start in defined areas like direct sales and other employees on edges. #kudos
