« Review - Dragon Naturally Speaking v.8.1 | Main | Contracting on the wane? »

November 27, 2005



Wow - a great considered response from Charlie Bess. I can be a tad harsh at times and looking over the post, the comment about knitting was probably a tad puerile. But let's not beat about the bush, it's not so different to what I'd say in public. But then the UK/Euro-centric way of going for the jugular doesn't travel well to the US where 'politeness' is seen as a virtue.

Wow, that was a pretty negative response to the blog. I have seen a few posts about the need to be less ethereal, but none to the extent of yours. Based on your response, it appears you would like to have the blog be:
1) less bland and more thought provoking
2) less defensive of the current business model
3) more focused

I will not try and defend my position, since everyone is entitled to their opinion, but I will keep your comments in mind.
