It was on January 3, 1996, when Bill Gates, then CEO of Microsoft corporation, published the essay titled “Content is King” which states that content will play a very crucial role in the future of then-emerging Internet. And no one can’t ever deny the fact that his words are very much accurate, especially these days.
Many people have doubted this statement by Mr. Gates, primarily because he was then running a giant corporation that could easily dominate the Internet, let alone control which type of content will go online and what’s not. However, the former CEO of Microsoft fully understood that content will not only dictate the future of the Internet itself but the overall business landscape as well.
