I´ve postet an article a few days ago with some famous quotes regarding some of the great false estimations and an interview of an EVP of IBM. Not much later, i found a comment in my weblog, that made a case for this EVP and put the comments in a different light.
I have no hard evidence for it, but i think this is a classical case of corporate damage control):
- Someone (Eglis Milbergs) searched directly after articles via google-blogsearch and posted an comment right after it.
- The same text was posted in the same form in multiple weblogs. For example here
- Eglis Milbergs works or worked for IBM:
- Look at Google
Again: I have no hard evidence for corporate damage control, but this smells a little bit fishy. And nothing against “Hey, you got some point wrong. Here are my arguments.” But pretending independency can ruin your arguments.
