Blue Screen Of Duds

Where the alter ego of codelust plays

CEO 2.0

with 2 comments

After the unconventional ways of Jonathan Schwartz (Sun’s CEO), who’s kept up his blogging efforts even after being bumped up to the post rather admirably (albeit in a less interesting manner ever since) and Alan Meckler (CEO, Jupiter Media) who is not half an interesting a blogger as the former is, we now have Mårten Mickos (CEO, MySQL AB) battling the hordes in the very unfriendly waters of Slashdot. I quite like the openness in these conversations, though I have to wonder how long it would be (basically around the time till they list) before Mårten would also be snowed under the numerous directives issued by the attorneys and the shadow of the infamous SOX. It is an interesting thread to follow all the same.

  1. While open communication via blogs is a great way to reach audience in an informal way, Slashdot is hardly the place to put your comments. And since, the life of discussion is fairly short, I suppose, he didn’t run his comments through the legal team. Very scary. Remember, off-hand comment by Larry/Sergey in Playboy before IPO created a lot of flutter and must have given some anxious moments to the top guys.

  2. Can’t agree more with you, I’d be surprised if he did not get rapped on his knuckles (with gentle care probably) by legal for the episode. And they’ll have to pretty much shut up and watch everything they say as the IPO comes around.
