Making the Trains Run on Time

Dave Winer has sold to Verisign for from what I can tell an undisclosed sum. He cites the sheer size scalabilty problems he has encountered as reason for it. That’s good enough for me, but his comments remind me of The Whitlams, Blow up the Pokies.

And I wish I, wish I knew the right words

To blow up the pokies and drag them away

‘Cause they’re taking the food off your table

So they can say that the trains run on time

Another man there was made the trains run on time

I just hope they don’t start taking the food off his table.
