A Banker for Bill

Those of you who commute to Canary Wharf everyday will no doubt see this at the tube station soon. For everyone else, here's how we are going to find an ibanker for Bill.

Maybe they have to be crazy.

How else can you stare at a ceiling
and see the proof for Fermat's last theorem?

Or sit in silence at King's Cross

and memorize railway timetables?

Or gaze at a red planet

and think of the unwritten Foundation?

While some see them as crazy ones,

we see geeks.

Because the people who are crazy enough to think
they can get away with it, are the ones who do.

Special thanks (Homage, BM wants me to say) to the good folks at Apple, phd comics and xkcd

very distressing to see phdcomics selling out like this. (if it's not a hoax, of course - that's the sound of hope's eternal spring.)

TR: only as much as Gandhi and Chavez sold out to Apple (blame it all on someone like Bill, the Gates that is, and Corbis for that). [No, this is nothing like Dylan hawking women's lingerie.]

And, he he hee! on hoping its not a hoax.

ya, well. if that's the case i hope jorge cham isn't being paid for it (much as i love him). because if this is a trend it could get out of hand pretty quickly. imagine the things slackenerny could peddle. (or my hero, prof. smith :-D)

tr: Now, now, you are one corrupting influence...

Jorge Cham will get his share when we get our first corporate sponsor, google perhaps. ;) Until our undying love is all he gets.

Just for the record: I HATE slackenerny. When I am not in love with him.

Tabula Rasa said...
