Quotable on 10Gen+MongoDB

Via Pandodaily (an article you definitely should read):

The company has big plans. 10Gen’s vision is to build a software platform company akin to Redhat or Oracle, Schireson says. “That’s the type of company we want to build,” he says. “Those companies don’t get acquired.” — 10gen President, Max Schireson

I’m glad that this is the vision. This is something I’m very positive about. I hope that this vision is realized for Max & the rest of 10gen. This is a company that has raised five rounds of venture funding ($73 million), currently valued at over $550 million.
