"Reluctantly, I am doing blogs"

The New York Times has a piece today by Damon Darlin entitled "HP Tries to Create Printers That Love the Web" that concludes with the subject quote, as attributed to HP (NYSE HPQ) Printer chief Vyomesh ("VJ") Joshi, as he describes his hands-on leadership role in shifting HP's printing strategy.

The nicely researched and well-written article covers VJ's drive to adapt HP's Printing and Imaging strategy to the fast-changing world of information dissemination that includes a wide variety of much-discussed Web 2.0 technologies, and more often than not does not include printing. Thus HP's interest as manifested in a wide variety of moves, some announced, such as the Tabblo acquistion I covered two weeks ago, as well as a variety of upcoming moves being hinted at. Darlin also quotes Pradeep Jotwani, HP's senior VP of the printer supplies vision, who I've also interviewed for my April 2007 Observations which will be online in a day or two. So check back for further perspective!
