Outside the tech policy area, but I just had to vent . . . .
In a blog post from Found|Read titled Dangers of a Threesome – (clever) – hapless Kevin Wolf writes of bringing two equal partners into a company formed around a business idea of his. He is distraught because the two partners recently fired him. His third conclusion from this episode – third! not first – is “If the idea for the business originated with you, consider keeping a controlling voting interest in the company.”
No shit. (‘Scuse my French.)
Found|Read is part of the impressive GigaOM network of online news sources and blogs, which produces a wide array of interesting information and thinking. But I wouldn’t listen very long to a running coach, sitting on the ground with skinned knees, who advised me that I should lace my shoes.
