I'd love to hear people's thoughts, especially from the fishies among
us about this deal.
I was speaking w/ a microsofty today about this and he is convinced
this is the new beginning of advertising. My take on it was more
personal. Razorfish has been a major organ (can't quite say it is the
heart) of the NYC/Silicon Alley UX scene for close to 10 years if not
10 years. It is hard to imagine that this organization is falling under
the umbrella of Microsoft. Will it still maintain it's brand? And
worse, will it still keep its NYC edge and connections? Will the type
of people who decide to become Razorfish employees stay at a company
like MS? What will this do to the NYC UX market and community?
Anyway, I find this very interesting.
