the content is important

BabyBlueOnline has a great commentary on the present situation in tec. I’ve suggested other metaphors/analogies in this same vein. We’re playing baseball, but instead of a leather covered sewn ball, 815, GenConv and the semitaries have substituted balloons filled with excrement. That’s what we’re supposed to pitch and hit. Not pretty… here’s a better image:

“I am writing this in a Starbucks. It is interdependent with the Starbucks corporation, but this Starbucks is a franchise, it is independently owned. There are certain things that this Starbucks most abide by or it loses its identity as a Starbucks. First and foremost, it sells coffee. If tomorrow it decided to no longer sell coffee, it would still look like a Starbucks, the people inside would still be wearing the same outfits, the sign outside still says Starbucks, and they’d still sell the CDs of Paul McCartney. But it wouldn’t be a Starbucks because Starbucks is all about coffee. No coffee, no Starbucks. It’s an imitation of the real thing and that is what is sadly happening to The Episcopal Church.”
