Comment of the Day: Could Sting Play Ray Ozzie?

Today’s winning comment goes to Kamyar, from our post The Beast of Redmond is Roaring (& Thinking) Again. Kamyar’s comment was a super-geeky reference to the classic sci-fi novel and movie, Dune. I’m not sure I can picture Sting as Ray Ozzie, but still it was a nicely gratuitous sci-fi reference. We’re fans of that at RWW.

Congratulations Kamyar, you’ve won a $30 Amazon voucher – courtesy of our competition sponsors AdaptiveBlue and their Netflix Queue Widget.

“Kinda off-topic…

“First he hands over the biz stuff to Ballmer; squeeze every last drop out of that cash cow please. Then he brought in Ray Ozzie, his cerebral equal and somebody the developers can relate to.”

This reminds me of part Dune in which Baron Vladimir Harkonen appointed his vicious nephew Rabban to squeeze Dune for spice and at the same time prepared his other nephew, the bright Feyd-Rautha, to his place as next baron of the house.”
