Yes, but I think even Bob in that phase of his career still held out
that there was choice in who and what you serve. That song is all
about those choices.
Service is not shame, unless what you serve is shameful.
Unfortunately, projects like Avalon coupled with Microsoft's pulling the
plug on Internet Explorer strike me as being precisely about forcing
choices to serve their interests, and that qualifies as shameful.
Network effects can make life great. They can also lead to great shame.
It's time for me to find a career where network effects don't force me
