Islam, Christianity, IBM, Microsoft
Prince wannabe Dan at tdaxp (Prince had an unpronounceable symbol, Dan has an unpronounceable 5-letter moniker) writes a brilliant post about how the relationship of IBM and Microsoft in the computer industry mirrors the relationship of Islam and Christianity over the centuries.
I kid you not, and it is brilliant.
This isn't a "Oh yeah, why didn't I see that?" kind of post. It's the kind of post that requires you to rewire many synapse connections to understand. It might make your brain hurt (my initial reaction), but it will increase your understanding of both business and world history. What more can you ask for?
(Yes, I know. Tastes like chocolate and only costs a dollar. Sorry, no flavor requests and the post is free!)
