It starts with a pool game.  

It ends with a riot.  

And in the middle, there’s a guy who sounds a lot like Henry Kissinger.

Except he makes tea.

The plans have been made.  The execution is proving hard.  We’ve had to bring some extra talent to the project (and some time soon we’ll have to thin about how much that talent is costing.)  The client is not helping things much and we’re undermining ourselves.

Big Tech: Act II

Usual cast of characters.

A tech bro who is a bully. 

A very smart CEO who just doesn’t seem to understand.  

A consultant who is finding her way in a lost, lost world.

Plus there are a pair of coworkers who have great sport commenting on the situation, the owner of a woman’t coworkspace that is treated with foreclosure and a Washington insider who once ran the world, even though he is constantly flummoxed by toner cartridges.  

Thus begins our second act of “What Big Tech Doesn’t Know”, a story of how Tech misjudges government and government underestimates the purveyors technology.
