A blogging loss, at least for now

I would be remiss if I didn't mention that there has been a change in a blog I have mentioned often and have highlighted to the right, Decidedly. The main author, Greg Glockner, has left the company from which the blog emerges (he talks about his decision in a post here). and we shall be losing his insight on issues of decision-making. The blog continues with posts by Carol A. Burch, whom I have quoted from time to time, and I'll go on following it, but we'll miss Greg and hope he finds another outlet for his writing soon.

you're such an aristrocrat about blogging.

i think about you a few times each week, as i tackle matters that span continents, but you just got worked up talking with me, mocking me, creating straw men of me and gleefully knocking them aside.

only so you could eventually return to your non-engagement style, aloof and elitist, but contented by the most simplistic of xenophobic analyses.

it's like we lived such similar lives, and drew such wildly different conclusions.

and we never bridged much of it at all. when i read wsj on topics that have interested you, i wonder if you read also... then i remember that you only critique bad journalism.

when i share the ceo's statement of the ratio 8:1 of indians to americans in a cost balance, there's nobody left to discuss it. carrie had no clue and bragged about it. you had, well, some sort of passion that never really expressed itself fully. you had to dress it up in pinky-raisings of link citations. the passionate marauder that could mock me and caricature me, he just slunked away.

what's left? some kudos and crosslinks, linguering on laurels, the blogger that never was.

does red oak have a blog? that person is sociopathic in their rage. they should blog. i can't bother with, what's her name, losing war on humor, more like losing war on concision and straight talk when it's appropriate.

you all failed in your revolution.

i outsourced some work to India today and thought of you. it wasn't even jobs, per se. our engineers have been taking turns monitoring the system via pager all night long. one described a nightmare (bona fide sleeping nightmare) where 2,000 failure reports flooded in. that's when i knew this couldn't last. if we're lucky, Indians can handle most of this while we sleep.

not sure what view you might have of this. i also witnessed a curious powerpoint of "india and america: similarities. differences." one from an indian and one from an american, which missed this smashingly basic fact (and many others): the time zones are advantageously different for our needs.

i hope i never really hit you unfairly. i just never quite understood you.
