Lunch 2.0…free like beer

Yesterday BNET held a Lunch 2.0 speaker series with Mary J. Foley talking to Dan Farber, CNET editor-in-chief, about Mary’s new book, “Microsoft 2.0: How Microsoft Plans to Stay Relevant in the Post-Gates Era.

The summation seemed to be that Microsoft will continue throwing a lot of money around for the foreseeable future.

As the talk wrapped up and Dan gave the final pitch for the book, he asked Mary how much the book cost and she responded with, “Free, like beer.”

The book in fact was not free.

Web 2.0 mistake… assuming the drinks are always free?

Lunch however was on CNET, which was enjoyed out on their sunny patio.
