Remember Brian Fugere? He’s the guy who said I should be fired last week in a speech at Microsoft’s campus. Well, today we had a very nice talk. He called to apologize. Said he did more work to see what kind of impact I, and the other bloggers here, have had. A few minutes ago he left a message in my comments where he explained more.
He still disagrees about whether I should take on Steve Ballmer or Bill Gates. I can see his point, which he makes here: “The problem is when technical evangelists get themselves confused with founders and CEO’s. So when Scoble rails against MS for their anti-discrimination policy (for example), he’s a rogue voice (regardless of how you feel about the issue) who happens to have an oversized megaphone.”
