Now, let’s play a game: pretend for a second that Steve Ballmer is driven by his need to conquer, and he’s also so angry at one of the people, say, I’m working with that he wants to kill them at all costs. So one day he shows up on my doorstep with a pile of Microsoft executives and asks to talk to me. Am I going to let him in?
Heck yes, after I put some pants on. Then I’m going to leak the story to the press. My stock is going to go up on rumors of some kind of deal with Apple (Adobe was up 10% last I saw), and my friends and enemies are all going to take me more seriously. It’s win/win for me, even though I have absolutely no intention of ever doing anything with Steve.
