No comment

octobre, 30, 2009

Being a high-value top notch CEO does not mean that you have the gift of predicting the future. Here is a sample of some assertions that does not need any comments 😉


« I think there is a world market for maybe five computers »
(but there are no confirmation that the quote is real)
Thomas Watson, president of International Business Machines (IBM), 1943.


« There is no reason anyone would want a computer in their home. »

Ken Olsen, president, chairman and founder of Digital Equipment Corporation, 1977.


« No one will need more than 637 kb of memory for a personal computer. »
Bill Gates, chairman and founder of Microsoft, 1981.


« For CRM, ASP model has no future »
Tom Siebel, founder of Siebel, 2002.

Now, maybe you heard Eric Schmitd predicting what the web will be in 5 years
