Web 2.0 Growth – Microsoft and Yahoo merger talks

Not a very profound quote I’ll accept, but I saw a quote attributed to yours truly in an article in Internet Week about the merger talks between Microsoft and Yahoo. I don’t even remember talking to the author of the article, but I’m attributed as saying: “The new technology out there is allowing people to connect far more easily and the best way to do this is through social media tools“. Well hopefully not many people will argue with that, but  what I would have preferred to have been quoted on is that regardless of what Yahoo and Microsoft decide to do in terms of the business-to-consumer interface, its the content that really counts, and I think that Yahoo have a clear edge over Microsoft in this respect. So, apologies to any readers for my actual printed quote – which is quite inane really!

I’m a life-long learner with an insatiable curiosity about life. I love travel, good food, and good company. I’m happy to share what I know with others….even the interesting stuff! My outlook on life is pretty well captured in this quote from a book about the legend of King Arthur: “The best thing for being sad,” replied Merlin, beginning to puff and blow, “is to learn something. That’s the only thing that never fails. You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may miss your only love, you may see the world about you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honour trampled in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then — to learn. Learn why the world wags and what wags it. That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting. Learning is the only thing for you. Look what a lot of things there are to learn.” ― T.H. White, The Once and Future King So much to learn, so little time!
