Was glad to see that the most interesting quotations from Google’s shareholder meeting this week came not from our executives but from the audience.
A few gems:
“I would like to thank you for not splitting the stock because Wall Street would like that very much.”
One woman complained that Warren Buffett had only served her “one lousy taco,” at the annual meeting of his investment firm [but complemented Google on their hospitality].
A man held up a pocket knife that he had been unable to carry into Apple’s annual meeting in Cupertino Thursday morning. “They confiscated my pocket knife and checked it for me,” he said. “But you guys didn’t.”
