    There’s such a fine line between “transparency” and “dirty laundry” in the professional world.

  • October 14, 2010

    Let me clarify: YOU are not airing dirty laundry here! I just meant that a lot of your critics ask for “transparency” not realizing just how difficult it is to navigate between open communication and, well, the tech-world version of “OMG! My 8 year old nursling just will NOT potty train!”

    HAHAHA! Wait, I’d so totally say that. :D

    A great example of this is the amount of bile the people of the IE9 team have to endure on their IE blog.
    Yeah, we all know IE sucks, but the people on the IE team are just that: people. People with a life outside their work, with loved ones and family. How easily we forgot amidst the relative anonymity of the internet.

    Erwin, there something else about that: I think they are really brave, those IE-guys. When you get all that flack, all that hate and bile against you, it’s hard to trust your instincts. It isn’t just a job anymore, I would assume.

    Leslie, I think this was a great little post right now. As much as I am passionate about EE, its problems and its community, I just got reminded by something that all that isn’t what’s real and important about my life.

    There are other things than the work we do that means more, and the reminder fell at somewhat of a perfect time. I don’t know.

    It’s lovely that we share this honesty, everyone. It seems EllisLab are trying as well, and that’s actually whats important: that honest try to better something - However we perceive and judge it. That’s life.

    I’m calling my grandmother tomorrow, just to get an update. We both really like it whenever we talk, even if it’s far inbetween.

    I hope Leslie get some nice moments before his grandfather is gone.
