Last week John Battelle wrote an open letter to Apple criticizing us for being so secretive. He was inviting us to participate in his Web 2.0 Summit, so that we could be more open and rejoin the nerd community and hold hands and sing Kumbaya. Apparently we would also have an opportunity to explain why we hate Adobe and Flash, and why we bully the press and tyrannize developers and end users. Then we could fall on our sword and apologize for being such total dicks to everyone around us.
