Slow children crossing

Well there’s a great new profile of Walt Mossberg, in the New Yorker no less. Supposedly he’s pulling down $1 million a year. See here. Best parts are the descriptions of how people like Eric Schmidt and Donna Dubinsky “consult” with Walt and seek his valuable input. There’s also a big section on how Walt loves Apple and hates Microsoft. Ballmer participated. I declined. Auletta begged me to talk to him. Instead I referred him to my blog, where I described how we deal with Walt. None of that made it into the story however.
