Roi, webservices and sex

I just found some great quotes about ROI (Return on Investment - a method to assist management decision making by evaluating the return on various investment alternatives.) and webservices:

and how about this one ...

Web services are like high-school sex: "everybody's talking about it, but practically no one's doing it, and the ones who are doing it, aren't doing it very well".
