A flash of moonlight

In case you are in the dark, Justin Rattner is moonlighting over at ZDNet.

Hey Justin, bring some value to Intel by building our brand by posting at blogs.intel.com. Don't forget to turn on the switch so you can see the lights from the outside.

For those who think this is me recycling posts from my gadget blog... well you are just plain wrong. I'm recycling it from Josh's tinyscreenfuls blog, if that makes any difference.

Better there than nowhere, I say, but I'd like to see him (and everyone!) blogging on intel.com, too.

Oh, and his feed isn't full text - summary only. Going to have to get on him to fix that one... :-)

Good to see you're back. I'm surprised you haven't mentioned the Intel song yet!

Some parodies are already popping up:

Ah, the Intel Song. This is not the first Intel song. There have been a few I recall over the years, usually written as an ode to some monumental task. They are as perennial as the batch of babies born 9 months after tape-out.

But the compulsion to sing the song without the influence of alcohol is a different thing. Not a big deal though. Intel needs to adapt to local culture and customs. I hear Otellini is authoring his own "Little Blue Book".

If you'd been asked to sing the song in a team meeting, even in jest, you'd realize how messed up things are right now.

Or maybe not. Maybe I'm just a naysayer and things at Intel are just hunky-dory:

"And no one at Intel is worried about the review, said the PR. The staff have faith in Paul Otellini and everyone is excited about his plans to turn the firm into a lean and mean organisation because that will put the price of shares up."

Frankieg,

You can only see blogs.intel.com from inside the firewall. Yep. Internal blogging only. Some people think that is necessary. Others think "WTF?"

There might be a place in this world for both types.
