Darth Ellison
hannahadams and I were laying awake tonight being kept awake by the naughty puppy. We talked a bit about database vendors, and she asked me "so, who is behind Oracle?" I told her that some people call him Darth Ellison. She grunted and said that it sounds to her as if he was not played with enough as a young boy, and that his insatiable appetite for consuming information-related companies indicates that he just needs some hugs.

She was much more eloquent than I, of course :)

When I saw the subject line, I naturally thought that you were talking about Harlan Ellison, the acid-tongued sci-fi writer. Damn, I likes me some Harlan Ellison. :)

do you think larry's 100 ft long yacht makes up for the lack of hugs? :)

I have no opinion, but I'm sure he's convinced himself.

Maybe it's not hugs he's compensating for?
