Mr. Mike Olson's succinct scenario for the future of software describes the loosely coupled, specialized dynamic that I hope will enrich me and other Sun investors: "Applications of the future...will be composed of small cooperating components, each specialized in a particular task, tied together on demand to perform a particular task." Those manifold applications give Sun's Schwartz a crisp one-liner: "Demand for what we build, for the technologies that power the network, will never cease."

If the communication structure behaves in that small, specialized, on-demand fashion, won't the org chart adapt to it?
