This is a definitive change from what we are accustomed to, Microsoft and Google are actually playing together. In a push to back entrepreneurs who want to introduce more groundbreaking ideas, Microsoft and Google have forged a tentative alliance by funding a new RAD Internet lab. Along with Sun Microsystems Inc., the $7.5 mil project is happening at University of California, Berkeley. Scheduled to open Thursday, it will be staffed by six UC Berkeley faculty members and ten computer science graduates. The idea is for the lab to develop an array of Web-based software services that will be given to anyone. Ideally, the RAD lab’s goal is to think up of revolutionary ideas to create company the likes of online auctioneer eBay Inc. or even Google.
