It's sometimes better to wait before discussing something
In the case of the recent fracas
regarding Google's Eric Scmidt, I read a bit about how people were upset over how Google's Blog treated the matter. Well they were kind enough to add a direct link
to the blogger in question, Donna Bogatin, erasing all doubt about who their rebuttal was aimed at.
The funny thing is that at first it wasn't clear who was being criticized, and she got very upset
, wanting them to point their finger directly at her. So that's exactly what they did - and I don't think it did her much of a service, though, because now we know for sure that they believe she is the person who was taking their man's comments out of context and distorting the truth about how they operate.
Careful what you wish for, eh?
Ironically, though, she's glad they did it
. But all it did was confirm that she did some flaky analysis. Oh well, at least she gets more traffic, I suppose.
If you want to read about the actual talk and what he covered instead of the silly controvery, Googlefact
has you covered.
