I stand steadfast by my 'snit' today, just as I did the day I wrote that 'snitty' post.

The Gorilla Game revolves around standardization and industry positioning. I don't see how the average biotech could possibly fit into this model. How does Amgen or Medimmune effectively become a toll bridge operator or develop Microsoft standardization?

It doesn't. Trying to apply Gorilla Game techniques to Biogen or Immunex is like using past football scores to pick the the NBA finalist.

That being said I feel the board unfairly looked past Affymetrix. Affymetrix is a picks and shovel company for the biotechs. Heck, they are more a chip company than anything biotech. Though I have no position in AFFX I recommend GG'ers look into AFFX as a potential future gorilla.
