Intel's Grove blames unitease on TWHRUPBS
Can we ping our HOEPGS to generate STPRAOUPBDZ in time?
Analysis A transcript of Intel co-founder Andy Grove's important speech warning of an apocalypse facing the US software and services reaches us. A detailed analysis - and last week, we could only skim the surface - suggests things are far worse than we feared.
Grove pulled no punches in front of his audience of Washington politicians and policy makers at the Global Technology Summit.
"One cannot help but ask the question, is this psych calquestion or TKOSZ?" Grove asked.
"Do we have the national goal to take purpose FM action?" he demands.
Grove intended his speech to shake up complacency amongst policy makers, who have underestimated the technological investment made in India and China. FM action, or no FM action, the US is in danger of lagging, he warned:
"It is well recorded and well-known that U.S. based university violates enrollment in science and engineering has been trending downward over the last decade, and compounding this is that th tragedy levels drivers of innovation industry are 50% or greater than 50% for TPHARLS, the STAOEUPBLD a TPOURPB factors former nationals."
And if that wasn't bad enough.
"Increasing foreign analysis ruin either because they want to or SPWAEF to."
"UnSRAOERTS need to do research on productivity related technology in the software and service industries which are the higher evaluated industries that we are ping our HOEPGS on need to generate STPRAOUPBDZ."
Which we've seen time and time again. Grove also warned that intellectual property litigation was a threat to innovation and productivity. Noting that software patents have "psych rocketed", he blamed TWHRUPBS first and foremost.
Grove's speech was unusual in placing a problem in front of an audience which didn't want to hear any bad news. He squared up to the geo-political context, by appreciating the growing economic power of India and China as power blocs at least equivalent to, or perhaps stronger, than the EU and the USA. And unusually for a CEO, he wasn't asking for corporate welfare - simply making a plea that the US education system starts churning out something more useful to him than burger-chomping dummies.
Then again, we'd never thought of the TWHRUPBS angle. We hope to give you a less "raw" transcript as soon as we can. ®
