  • Zucker's Game: End Of LinkedIn [View article]
    yes, there is no doubt people currently use linkedin for empty resume engagement, there is no doubt that facebook has done very little to compete with this in the past.

    that's why LNKD's defenestration will be quite easy

  • Wintel Decouple: Short Microsoft, Long Intel [View article]
    Jon, my articles refactor qualitative data to present dissenting opinions. They are inherently contrarian. Most articles do not dissent on this level. That is why I get more angry comments. If I got too many agreeable comments, I would double-check to make sure I wasn't doing something wrong. I suggest you review my body of scholarship to see where I have been wrong in the past and where I have been right; then you might appreciate where I am coming from on this thesis. If you have a blog I would love to read your thoughts as well to see where your framework comes from. Certainly we can agree that our disagreement, which exists in multiple dimensions, cannot be negotiated through a one-dimensional discussion of Microsoft's design ethics.

  • Microsoft's Capital Allocation May Be Getting Better, But Still Really Bad [View article]
    My question is, why are you optimistic for their ability to manage the business? Is it because the business is easy to manage, or because they are more competent as business managers than capital managers?

  • Microsoft's Capital Allocation May Be Getting Better, But Still Really Bad [View article]
    So you think they can't allocate capital, but they can allocate resources to run a business?

    "I would contend that Facebook, to compete directly and effectively, would need to create a separate professional network and not rely on its existing social network platform"
    ---

    You keep saying "I would argue" and "I would contend". Yet you do not do it beyond repeating the claim using different words (circularity). There are two explanations for this.

    One, you are capable of a tangible contention (a meaningful argument) and are simply countersignaling this ability. Two, you are entirely incapable of making the argument, because the argument itself is an impossibility.

    "While it remains to be seen how much farther Facebook can grow, from a professional network standpoint, I would argue that Facebook does not provide a proper forum to effectively engage in the staffing and recruiting industry. Facebook does not have the nimble ability to up and change course, either, now that they have such a well-established communicative and entertainment-value social network -- some things just do not mix."

    Would like to see you argue this.
