IBM: The ‘next big thing’ no longer exists | CNET News.com

What great quote to star my WordPress/Hyperwords blog with. From a big guy at IBM:

"If you're looking for the next big thing, stop looking. There's no such thing as the next big thing," he added.

It sounds a bit like a combination of two classic quotes:

"Everything that can be invented has been invented."
Charles H. Duell, commissioner of the US Office of Patents 1899.

&

"I think there is a world market for about five computers."
Thomas Watson, chairman of IBM 1943

Which is great news! Just like the announcement right before 1900 that every discovery in science had been made heralded a golden age in science, I guess we are about to see a golden age of invention!
