May 2007 Archives

OK -- So MANY of you enjoyed the "Snake Eats Alligator and Explodes" blog that I just couldn't resist another one of these... My husband sent me this gem and it just made my day. The comments by the videographer are priceless!

Here is a video of a killer bunny going after a snake again and again... The bunny is one determined critter eventually driving the snake to actually climb a tree to get away from the rabbit. I am not making this up...

Kind of reminds me of all the bright new BI technology start-ups out there taking on their more established competitors. You have be a quick, fast, and agile rabbit to avoid getting eaten or driven off by these big companies.

Could this be another analogy for the -- um -- uber-snake company and all of its recently "meals"?

But -- then again, maybe it is a warning to another large reptilian-like company to watch out for all those open source rabbits who who won't be trampled!

Yours in BI success --

Claudia
