You get a hilarious song direct from TechEd Europe.
Pat sings his version of Don McClean's American Pie.
The lyrics were written by Pat in response to Nicholas Carr’s Harvard Business Review paper “IT Doesn’t Matter” in which Mr. Carr proposes that businesses reconsider their IT investments. Pat says this is not the vision he sees for the future, but rather what is implied by reducing the investment in IT as proposed by Mr. Carr. This is a “speculative retrospective” in which we examine what happened “The Day That IT Died”.
