Getting the most out of knowledge workers will be the key to business success for the next quarter century. Here’s how we do it at google.

Me read that as “The company with the most employees without an inkling of what’s going on (out-of-knowledge) will be successful.

(From this newsweek article…)

Also, I started debating whether it should be “key to business success FOR the next quarter century” or “key to business success IN the next quarter century”. Also note that the “g” in google is not capitalized.

Time to sleep, I suppose.

I am the black kettle calling the pot black, I know, being not so careful with my grammar and spelling up here, but yet, I miss the days when finding a spelling mistake, or incorrect grammatical constructions in the daily newspaper (The Hindu) used to make my day.

And no, The Hindu is not in “Hindu”. I have had no less that 3 people ask me, “So you’re from India, eh, do you speak Hindu?”

Quick Quiz – which is the fourth most-spoken language in the world? No searching in Wikipedia, or elsewhere – only top-of-the-mind answers allowed.

    Based on this post, I’m going to hazard a guess that it’s Hindi. I know Chinese is high up on the list too.
