Look out Red Hat -- it appears that Mr. Ellison, Oracle's rock star CEO, may be looking to embed a Linux product into Oracle. Is this good or bad? And who is it good or bad for? According to Matt McKenzie. Editor, Linux Pipeline, a newsletter that I subscribe:

"... this isn't "coopetition," or anything else you can describe with a cutesy moniker -- this is the IT industry's second-richest, and perhaps most ruthless, executive deciding how best to rub out a source of persistent irritation. Assuming Ellison pays attention to his grudge du jour long enough to follow through on his ruminations, the enterprise Linux market a year from now will consist of Oracle -- and three grease spots where Novell, Red Hat, and JBoss were last seen."

Ouch!

I wrote a blog on the demise of Western Union recently. If you remember, they charged by the letter for their telegrams. This lead to some interesting if not cryptic forms of communication. The best example I can think of was a farmer who sent a telegram to a fellow farmer that the bull he purchased was ready to be picked up. To save money, he sent the purchaser a telegram with a single word on it -- "Comfortable"... Think about, it will come to you.

Little did I know that this form of cryptic messaging would be rebirthed in an unusual and unpredictable fashion...
