About those trees blocking Larry's view
It would be nice, Doug, if you could find someone to cut down those 3 pesky Redwoods and the Acacia tree on the nieghbor's lot that block the view of the bay from Larry's Pacific Heights home. They were nearly trimmed by an unidentified crew before the last America's Cup, The crew claimed to have been given the wrong address with their tree trimming assignment, but then, dang it, the neighbors, Bernard and Jane Von Bothner, came home and interupted the job. It wasn't clear who they were working for, according to a report in 2011. Oh wait, the next America's Cup won't be on San Francisco Bay, will it. Nevermind.

Stand-in double Replicant for Oracle Open World?
Why drag down to the Moscone Center and hang with the hoi polloi yet again? We think Ellison would love a life-like Larry Ellison Replicant (we won't call it an "Android," because that's kind of a sore spot). He can program in a few rehashes of the Oracle Database In-Memory announcement and a few competitor jabs and, bingo, it can deliver this year's Oracle OpenWorld keynote.

Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
