>> Phrase from nearest book

Another blog meme, caught this time from Stewart Smith and Josh Stewart with rather amusing consequences:
  • Grab the nearest book.
  • Open it to page 56.
  • Find the fifth sentence.
  • Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
  • Don’t dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.
Result (and this will make me the laughingstock of the office, I'm sure): "We understand the technology, which at the end of the day is really what drives the industry." From, wait for it ... "Microsoft Secrets", by Michael Cusumano and Richard Selby. Now what was *that* doing on my desk? ;-)
