Accent on Moderately.
This data, if accurate (it is published on the Web after all), is 3.5 years old… but still.
So if you take out the 49 countries on the list, the company I work for is the 51st biggest economic entity in the world. That surprised me a little bit. What surprised me more was the company that wasn’t on the top 100 list: Microsoft.
But then I started looking through the list at corporations. I am making a big leap here, but I wonder if having 4 of the top 51 corporations with a big presence here in Central Illinois (specifically Bloomington/Normal) doesn’t have something to do with the low unemployment rate and relative recession resistant economy.
As I said, moderately interesting and most likely nothing to do with usability. Except for my company. That’s all about usability!
