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 :)
