Why? Because you have people like this working for you and you give them titles like “Distinguished Marketing Director.” And you let them make videos raving about how excited they are to be giving away Sun’s intellectual property and to be getting a merit badge from Richard Stallman. For those of us who remember what a great company Sun once was, this video is painfully sad. Hello? Berkeley Software Distribution? Ever heard of it? Guy named Bill Joy? I feel gross putting Bill Joy’s name in the same blog post as Richard Stallman.
Another thing: Even the Microtards have a rule about employees blogging and vlogging: “Don’t be stupid.” Take note, Sun.
