So about six weeks ago the company I work for was bought by DoubleClick, probably the largest technology company in our particular niche industry (digital advertising and marketing). On Friday, it was announced that Google has agreed to buy DoubleClick (article chosen because it is a reasonably good non-corporate background for anyone who has no idea what I’m talking about but is interested).
I’m not actually concerned in the slightest. I have no idea what it all means, but I’ve spent seven years in an industry where the entire focus of a technology company can change in under a month, so I’m used to that. I just hope it stops now, so I don’t have to keep on re-adjusting my list of things to think about. (No one is likely to buy Google, so I’m pretty safe there.)
Anyway, I’m off to enjoy the sun for a bit. Shower some pity on James, who has spent most of this weekend inside, running auditions for Tony Blair the Musical.
