Simple, clear and concise.  It reminds me of so many internal IT roadblocks to fundamental change.  Have to use VB, must rely on mainframe, needs to be in Rails, etc.  Currently leveraging the World Wide Computer in favor of building it in-house or relying on someone's custom solution seems to be the most common roadblock IMO.

I would love to change the world, but they won't give me the source code.

Yeah... Guy Kawasaki talks about this too when he says that it's very rare, almost unheard that when evolution happens the current big companies evolve. They just can't evolve because they are so successful in the old ways.

And this is what's going to happen to a lot of big web companies in the near future. The "sad" thing is that this is going to happen in a lot faster pace than it happens in the "real-world" so many of the companies that are big today are not going to be big very long. Or they continue to be big but they will adapt themselves as service companies that work with new innovations like IBM did. And I think that's smart. When you can't keep up with the youngsters, reorganize as service company and take all the service business in the new innovations by using your existing brand as reliable provider and existing customer base.
