Didn’t take long! Seen as they just broke the US$600 mark before snapping up Jaiku. Reckon they’ll make it to the 1K mark?
Who knows? Could I have predicted $740 a share? Nope.
I think FSJ put it best in his recent post.
Choice quote here:
“Reason #2 — the only companies that join consortia are the ones who are too stupid or shitty to make a great product on their own. It’s like, Hey, we’ve got forty spazzo companies that can’t fuck their way out of a paper bag; let’s put them all together and maybe they’ll magically become some kind of big bad powerhouse. More likely it’ll just be some scary ass Frankenstein monster, walking around drooling and tripping over its own tongue.”
Hope this doesnt violate your all new non cursing rules Joe 😉
