What we really need is a CxO eating fungus. ;)

My wife and I were having lunch the other day in a trendy little bistro
type place in the heart of Orange county's tech belt, and the hot topic at
most tables was "management is so dumb". Seems to me once you get above the
hands on level in almost every company that it becomes a political personal
agenda group with little grasp of market or product. A fungus seems like a
really poetic end for them.

Getting back to CD rot, I think the operative thing to consider is
condensing humidity, which nothing modern is happy with.
