Some feedback from Joy about

posted by Jason Kottke   May 25, 2000

Some feedback from Joy about my “what if companies were people” question (more to follow). My comments in italics:

- Companies would have sex. (AOL/Time Warner merger?)

- Companies would graduate from high school and go to college. (going IPO?)

- Companies would get married and have babies. (AT&T splitting up into the Baby Bells?)

- Companies would go on vacation. (corporate retreats?)

- Companies would get drunk. (Coca-Cola introducing New Coke?)

- Companies would get a DUI. (Big Tobacco getting sued and fined?)

- Companies would get in car accidents. (eToys stock going into the sewer over the Etoy.com flap?)

- Companies would die of old age. (little Mom ‘n Pop stores that get run out of business by the likes of Wal-Mart and Barnes & Noble?)
