I Don’t Really Hate To Say “I Told You So”

Not to be, you know, rabidly egotistical or anything, but I was right and everyone else was wrong.

“No way could YouTube ever sell for $1.5 billion,” they said. “Those arrogant young techies — they always overvalue themselves. Well, we know the real scoop,” they said.

Well, I guess it is technically true that YouTube didn’t go for $1.5 billion. Actually, Google is going to pay $1.65 billion.

Your kudos for my stellar predicting skills - not to mention your naked obsequiescence and/or cash - are all accepted.
