Slightly off-topic here, but am I the only one who is concerned by the
fact that virtually all businesses define "ultra long term" as 5 years or
less? It seems that 5 years is about the limits of Capitalism's
vision... The Internet, while very young, is still 5 or 6 times that old.
Maybe the politicians and managers, by virtue of being politicians and
managers, should not be allowed to be politicians and managers. Yes, I
think that made sense, but it's 7am and I haven't slept yet tonight so I
can't be sure.
