From the NYTimes Circuits Email that I get, two quotes worth passing on from the BLOGs by MSoft employees on the Ultra-Mobile PC (UMPC) – apparently a train wreck in the making:
- Putt's Law #1: "Two types of people dominate technology: those who understand what they do not manage, and those who manage what they do not understand."
- Putt's Law #2: "Rejection of management objectives is undesirable when you are wrong, and unforgivable when you are right."
- Putt’s Law #99: “Screw everything and let’s go play golf!” (My Own Addition)
"Putt's Law" is a hilarious guide to career advancement in high-tech organizations. Long out of print, a new edition of the book was just released by the IEEE Press and John Wiley & Sons. Archibald Putt has sharpened his humor to the point where it bites. There's an excerpt from the new edition called "Archibald Putt Meets the Internet" at the following URL:
