Earlier this morning, I read this post about Gabriel Stricker, the Director of Global Communications & Public Affairs at Google, switching gigs to Twitter. A few days ago, Bloomberg wrote about a dear friend no less, Ricardo Reyes leaving Tesla Motors to join Square as head of their corporate communications strategy. In November 2011, when Twitter corp. comm honcho Sean Garret quit, it started a blogstorm of speculation.
Sure, these are some great people and everyone including me is happy for their new gigs and future success. But when I read these posts and often wonder to myself that have we run out of things to say and write that actually are about technology and the companies behind them? Or do we feel compelled to fill the white space between what matters? Sort of like talk radio?
