Cranky Geek - John Dvorak - takes huge swipe at spreadsheets, BI and accountants.

Lots of other things I want to and should post at the moment, but I couldn't let this slip. An article by John Dvorak that is kicking up quite a storm. Love John Dvorak. Always worth reading and listening. He's often wrong (and very wrong), but always there is something to what he says. Anyway, he is an article about the 30th anniversary of the spreadsheet.

He's nuts of course (in a good way, and that's what I like about him), but he makes a point. We have all this wonderful what-if analysis, information at our figure-tips, enterprise Bi all over the place - so how come we aren't making better decisions? Of course, the spreadsheet isn't to blame but its a fun read.
