I Say... 2004 Edition: The 101 Dumbest Moments in Business

I don't know how many of you are aware of this, but it's been a yearly event for a couple of years now.

Although we typically discuss quality assurance and engineering topics, other areas always come into the equation. Some of the entries are a bit lame, but it's some 'Food for Thought'.

Pretty funny, where do you find this stuff?

In my opinion one of the all time top Dumbest Moments would be when IBM told Gates and crew that he could keep ownership of his operating system..the money is in the computer.

Unfortunately, I know a couple of companies where they could have gotten another 50 at least as good (bad) as those.
