Since I've been predicting the demise of Google for a long time, I might as well add in anything negative about them!! Dave Winer
(who can be a little thin skinned himself!) is talking about the
companies who claim they are cool and un-evil, are exactly the
opposite. Apple, Google, and O'Reilly. I don't know enough
about O'Reilly, but I agree with the Apple and Google view.
And that Microsoft are relatively "laid back".
And also this from Dave Winer,
Or can we get Apple to thicken up their skin a bit, and learn to not punish people who have the nerve to criticize them. Blogs were supposed to fix all this. Frankly I think it hurts Apple to just have rah-rah public discourse and commentary.
