“I think there is a world market for maybe five computers.”
These words have been attributed (probably incorrectly) to a former chairman of IBM. They are often cited as among the “dunderheaded tech predictions.” Looking back on the unbelievable proliferation of computers, it’s easy to make such a judgment now. It is a good warning, however, to be less skeptical of strategic thinking. Who knows what the future holds?
Fools base their thoughts on foolish assumptions… No one really knows what is going to happen; no one can predict the future. (Ecclesiastes 10:13-14)
