InfoWeek:

Q: Will there be an acquisition in the security space?

Will there be a security acquisition?
Will there be an acquisition in the security sector?
Will there be acquisition in security?

I’m reading John Battelle‘s The Search right now and he’s as guilty of it as anyone. I swear, if I hear about it one more time . . .
