A quote about todays IT Infrastructure:
We believe we're moving out of the Ice Age, the Iron Age, the Industrial Age, the information age, to the participation age. You get on the Net and you do stuff. You IM, you blog, you take pictures, you publish, you podcast, you transact, you distance learn, you telemedicine. You are participating ont the internet, not just viewing stuff. We build the infrastructure that goes in the data center that facilitates the participation age. Scott McNealy, Former CEO of Sun Microsystems
