Quote of the day

by Volker Weber

IBM is afraid of Microsoft who is afraid of Google who is afraid of Facebook who is afraid of Twitter who is afraid of whales.
Jeremiah Owyang, Forrester Research


Whales like the Big Blue Whale? ;-)

Nice. Though I would like to see some recursion in this statement ;).

Ingo Seifert, 2009-06-17

And what is more, it means that no one is afraid of IBM? Poor ones...

Explaining the joke: Twitter shows an image of a big blue whale when the service is down.

Timo Stamm, 2009-06-17

@Timo - that whale looks white to me....

Obviously, myspace is missing in there, which are very afraid of Facebook it seems...

@Bruce: Oops. I was carried away by Martins comment. Anyhow, that's the whale we're talking about :-)

Timo Stamm, 2009-06-17

Bruce - it's just like inverted colors ;-)

Martin Hiegl, 2009-06-17

The colors remind me of a popular Lotus venue. :-)

Surely everyone is afraid of a great white whale?
Hey, even Starbuck was a bit afraid of the big white whale!
