Phil, over on the “Platformwars” blog says that he left a comment here and now it’s gone. I don’t knowingly delete comments. I wonder if any other comments are disappearing?
Anyway, his post is in reaction to the business author who said I should be fired. His point was very interesting. Says that author did that to ingratiate himself with bosses who wouldn’t put up with someone saying a bad word about their companies. Most companies are like that. Heck, when we interviewed Mark Cuban for our book he came out and said he would never allow that kind of blogging.
Is having a boss who is willing to put up with some criticism important? Yes. It buys me a LOT of loyalty to Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer (and Sanjay and Vic and Eric and Steve and Jeff).
One other thing, Phil, can you put your name and your email address on your blog? I wanted to write you but couldn’t. Also, since you’re using Blogger can you make it possible to leave a comment without being a Blogger subscriber?
