That Other Big Tech IPO
from the oh-yeah,-them dept
The massive rush of news surrounding Google's pending IPO must be painful for Marc Benioff at Salesforce.com - which represents the "other" big dot com IPO of the year. Benioff can't talk about the IPO because they're in their "quiet period", but if you've seen some of the publicity stunts he's pulled off, you know that he can't stand being out of the spotlight. So, he let a reporter follow him around for a day and just tried to avoid talking about IPO related stuff. It's an interesting read, and talks about the success of Salesforce.com so far, while still being skeptical about its overall chances.
