Imagine

by Volker Weber

Imagine you have Damien Katz on your payroll. Imagine you pay him to build this great open source database, that is an offspring of his Notes experience. Imagine the BBC is using it. Imagine Ubuntu is building their One service on it. Imagine there is another biggie coming out this month or next month.

Imagine, you don't use it anywhere for your own stuff. You are IBM.

... then I couldn't possibly imagine why IBM would be investing in it. *bats eyelids innocently*

Hmm, what about this initiative? Or are you implying that won't work?

IBM is probably still thinking how to get this IBM Global Services ready.
But hey, they pay Damien and he (and others) seem to build an awesome piece of software. I think they (IBM) deserve some credit for that. He started to work for MySQL AB and then finally got hired by IBM to exclusively work on Couch Db. A very smart decision so it seems (for both).
