Go on Scoble show, get yourself fired!

Well, this explains a lot about why Microsoft pursues monopoly software and why they are naturally opposed to virtualization in Vista, among other things.

"I got yelled at at Microsoft for talking to the press a few times. But they stopped bothering when they realized that I was talking to the press on my blog anyway and generally I wasn’t causing too many messes that needed to be cleaned up."

My two previous posts about Robert Scoble and his blog:

  • http://www.donationc...dex.php?topic=4890.0 - "Does being so over the top in terms of being self-absorbed, name-dropping, self-promoting, self-hyping, etc., really help people in business?  Personally I find it almost unbearable."
  • http://www.donationc...dex.php?topic=6425.0 - "Most of the time you should focus on talking about yourself and the big shots you know.  But sprinkle these posts with discussions reflecting on how cool it is that you spend most of your time takling about yourself and the big shots you know."
