celebrating people

Wil Shipley's post Celebrating Bertrand Serlet and Craig Federighi is about as opposite in tone from this morning's Gizmodo post as you can get...and that's worth celebrating. "So, we’re losing a great man in Bertrand, and we’re gaining one in Craig. I think most people want to know 'is this good for Apple?' Well, what’s good for Apple is: Bertrand wants to do something different, Craig wants to do this, and the most effective employees are the ones who are doing exactly what they want."

I'm not part of that community, and I've never come close to meeting either man, but reading Wil's post was a joy: it's full of respect, passion and love for the people behind the products.
