Sir Bill Gates

I hear Bill Gates is going to get an honourary knighthood (KBE) for outstanding contribution to business.

How about Sir Joel ?

Not only that but Ricky Gervais is going to be making a series of 'Office' videos for internal management training at Microsoft.

One would hope in the spirit of what not to do.

How much of a discount do you think Gordon Brown will expect for it, when they meet this morning?  What do you reckon - "Well make it 70% off and we'll throw in a peerage"  ?

Sorry, I'm just far too cynic before coffee.  I suppose I never could get the hang of Mondays.

Correction Ricky Gervais has made the videos. See ZDNet.co.uk (Brent Videos)

He's not going to be "Sir Bill".

Mucky foreigners don't get to use the "sir".

No - a few hours & some coffee later and I still wonder if it has anything to do with the meeting between Gates, Brown (who holds the purse-strings) and the guy from the OGC who recommends what software government should use.  Couldn't have...obviously.
