See this sad blog post where an engineer who just left Apple after 16 years says he doesn’t like the way we manage our public image. Money quote: “Ever since the return of Steve Jobs, the company has been pretty maniacal about micro-managing its visible face, to make it as smooth and featureless as an iPod’s backside. (In my darker moments I’ve compared it to the brutal whiteness of “THX-1138”.) It’s deeply ironic: For a company that famously celebrates individuality and Thinking Different, Apple has in the past decade kept its image remarkably impersonal.“
Fear not. Moshe has been dispatched.
