Quotes: "Can of worms? The can is open… the worms are everywhere."
I’ve been collecting quotes off the Internet since 1991, here are some of the gems of my collection:
“Can of worms? The can is open… the worms are everywhere.”
– Brian Wood, a coworker of mine at the Institute for Global Communications, Spring 2000
Used as my Slashdot Sig for many years.
The workers and management were in deep discussion on how to pull IGC
(An early internet nonprofit organization) out from our current financial crisis. Many of the proposed solutions were complex, and people were afraid that some solutions were like opening a can of worms. However, Brian was right… we were already in the midst of the crisis. The can was already open, and the worms were everywhere.
