The commercialisation of ITIL: a slow boiling of the frog

A recent comment said "Why is everyone banging on about the commercial aspects of this refresh?'s been commercial for years."

Indeed ITIL has been commercial for years. But it has beeen a slow boiling of the frog. The unseemly scrabbling around version 3 has made obvious a trend that has indeed been going on for longer.

Either the ITIL community will get so sick of it we'll see the vendors off, or they'll feed until the ITIL body goes blue, but eventually the pillaging vendor hordes will pack up camp and move on. The good folks over at ISACA should brace themselves for the onslaught.


Actually, frogs are smarter than us

Death of a wonderful metaphor...

We should try the experiment on human beings, actually.

Why can't I get line breaks in my posts?

Ah Snopes. One of the world's greatest skeptical websites.

Ah Snopes. One of the world's greatest skeptical websites. Thanks for that!

I think I've fixed your linebreak problem , sorry about that

P.S. "As the temperature of the water is gradually increased, the frog will eventually become more and more active in attempts to escape the heated water. If the container size and opening allow the frog to jump out, it will do so."
What kind of sicko would design an experiment where the opening did NOT allow the frog to jump out?
