I thought I was the only person asking where Apple employees were blogging, but I was wrong: Dennis Cheung, who works for Microsoft’s MacBU, beat me to it.
Some of the comments come from anonymous Apple employees, and are somewhat illuminating. For example, this:
Part of the problem is that, as Apple employees, our every little word is picked apart and scrutnized for possible leaks of future products. We as employees are unable to change the situation, since secrecy is dictated from top down, and in any case it is integral to how Apple does business these days. We can’t even talk about products that are already released, because there is also the possibility of leaking future plans for the product.
I find that somewhat sad. After all, who’s going to steal Apple’s ideas? Microsoft? Microsoft can afford to wait until it’s out, and then copy the better ideas. And really, I doubt that Bill Gates is very surprised by much that’s in a Steve Jobs keynote speech.
I’m on my way out of the door soon, but when I get back I’m going to collate the Apple bloggers that are linked to in Dennis’ piece, and put them in the sidebar.
