Begging on Wall Street
There are three beggars begging on Wall Street.
The first beggar wrote "Beggar" on his broken cup. He
received $10.00 after one day.
The next day, the second beggar wrote "Beggar.com" on his
cup. After one day, he received hundreds of thousands of
dollars and an offer to float an IPO on NASDAQ.
The following day, the third beggar wrote "e-Beg" on his
cup. Microsoft, IBM, and HP sent corporate vice-presidents
to talk to him about strategic alliances and offered him free
hardware consultancy. In addition, it was reported on CNBC
that e-Beg uses 95% Oracle technology and that I2 announced
the launch of BegTradeMatrix; a b2b industry portal offering
supply chain integration in the beggar community.
