At least, that’s been my experience. I’ve gotten nothing but support from my management, coworkers, and people outside the company.
I just wanted to state that publicly, because my post about “what value do I bring?” seems to be giving undeserved weight to the anonymous “concerned grade 11 corporate manager” whose comment kicked this whole thing off.
I won’t reveal all the details here, but I’ve received some more communication, allegedly from this Intel senior manager, that just doesn’t sit right. At least, I have a hard time believing that a senior manager at Intel would behave that way in public, even anonymously. Until I get further evidence otherwise, I’m thinking that our friend the anonymous G11 manager is an imposter, trying to troll me and provoke a response.
So, before all of you read Chris Pirillo’s blog post “Intel Hates Bloggers?” and get the wrong impression from this one anonymous commenter, let me state, for the record, that it’s not so.
Intel loves bloggers. It just needs a whole lot more of them. And that’s something I’m working on.
