Why? Why so much emphasis on one guy?
Because he’s the most original thinker in the community. Period.
Case in point: microsoft and chess pieces.
You can choose to be a King. You can choose to be a Queen. Many choose to be Pawns. Hell, you can even choose to be a Blue Monster (though most prefer to run in fear from them instead – whether real or the dreams in your head).
You can love Microsoft (or Google or GE or Wal-mart or the guy down the street who seems to eat your lunch every day). You can loathe them. You can fear them (though what a waste of time). Each is a choice. Make one. Fish, cut bait, be a monster. But choose something. And move on.
That’s what Hugh reminded me today.
