Monkey Boy!!!

Now that Steve Ballmer is Microsoft CEO, it didn’t take him long to come up with a quote to top Bill Gates’ “640kb ought to be enough”:

“I think these things [social networks] are going to have some legs, and yet there’s a faddishness, a faddish nature about anything that basically appeals to younger people,”

Marc Andressen skewers him nicely:

“I think these things [personal computers] are going to have some legs, and yet there’s a faddishness, a faddish nature about anything that basically appeals to younger people.”

but he forgets to take credit for something he did in his youth:

“I think these things [web browsers] are going to have some legs, and yet there’s a faddishness, a faddish nature about anything that basically appeals to younger people.”
