Steve Ballmer & The Magic Of Names
Those last few posts made me think of Steve Ballmer. Everytime I see him he reminds me of someone. I can't figure out who though. Perhaps it's just Ballmer himself... Perhaps I'm just so used to being introduced to the man originally by that "Developers, developers, developers..." video that all I can think of is a pseudo-parody of the man himself. Or perhaps it's Hermann Göring. Yes, yes, I see the similarities alright. Then again, no.
I will always prefer Bill. Come back Bill! Isn't it funny how his name is Bill and he's a "Bill"ionaire? It's as if his name somehow destined him to become what he is. It reminds me of that episode of The Golden Girls where they are discussing how surnames were often derived from the craft the person worked at, and Rose thought Ronald Reagun invented the Ray Gun. Or something like that. It must be at least 20 years since I saw that episode last. It's all a bit of a blur, but in finishing up I'd just like to say: Steve Jobs, what a cunt.
