Yahoo and Facebook square off in suits and countersuits as the patent wars heat up. I find it unfortunate that companies are turning to lawsuits to make money and gain advantage instead of letting market innovation and customer satisfaction count. I think it is a fundamental flaw when a society turns to the courts in this way. There are ads telling people to call lawyers and "this may be your lucky accident" (as I heard the other day.)
REsignation letter or work of prose?
Although many write off Stewart Butterfield's letter to Yahoo, as a creative person myself, I see the point of what he's saying.
Also, creative people think differently. Metaphorically. I understand what he is saying entirely. Not sure the engineers and many liked this one, but I thought it was fascinating.
