Earlier today, Oracle announced that it entered into an agreement to acquire Responsys in a deal worth nearly $1.5 billion. Predictably — no pun intended (maybe) — this set off some classic Movable Ink geek banter:
- Vivek Sharma, CEO: I called it! http://www.cnbc.com/id/101289244
- Jordan Cohen, VP of Marketing: It took an Oracle to call that one.
- Vince PeGan, Sr. Account Manager: Great Responsys, Jordan!
- Adam Stambleck, VP of Client Experience: Seeing the news this morning, put a big Springer in my step.
- Vivek Sharma: I have been gifted with ESP to make calls like that.
Huge congrats to our friends at Responsys!

An innocent email forwarded by one of our Sales Directors, Chris Tucker, set off a chain of unfortunate reply-alls. Chris shared an article that made him come to the shocking realization that he’s been mispronouncing “GIF” (the acronym for Graphics Interchange Format) all his life, which caused him to react as follows:
Below is the geeky office banter that ensued:
Michael Nutt, Co-Founder and CTO: “GIF” as in “gift” forever!
Vince PeGan, Customer Success Manager: GIF for life, no peanut butter.
Alison Lindland, Customer Success Manager: Just don’t look a GIF horse in the mouth.
Vivek Sharma, Co-Founder and CEO: Ok, ok… enough. GIF me a break, I’m trying to get work done.
Olivier Lauzon, Senior Engineer: This is a GIF that keeps on giffing.
Jason Valdina, VP of Product: Forgif me for asking this, but how do you pronounce “JPG”?
Matthew Potter, VP of UK and EMEA: Never known a bunch of people could get so ‘animated’ over GIFs.
