IBM: The ‘next big thing’ no longer exists

“If you’re looking for the next big thing, stop looking. There’s no such thing as the next big thing,” Nicholas Donofrio said.

I read this and thought of the old quote “everything that can be invented has been invented” and low and behold the comments had this..

In 1899, then Patent Commissioner, Charles H. Duell reportedly announced that “everything that can be invented has been invented.” Obviously, he waswrong as is Mr. Donofrio.

I think Nick has made a statement and I’m sure he may well come to regret those words. Don says it does, just that it doesn’t look big to IBM and I have to agree with him. [via]
