This discussion isn't about the size of IT firms. Has more innovation in the computer industry come about from the largest IT firms, or from elsewhere? Do AT&T or Xerox count as IT firms for the purposes of this discussion? Ie: Do you think most Americans associate them with computers or something else? What were Intel or Apple or Oracle thinking of when courting a firm as small as Acorn for its technology? Originally your argument was that, being large IT firms, they hadn't even heard of Acorn, right? Now it's a competition to see who is a household name. I think you've been watching too much X-Factor.
