Not even showing up

Dave Winer (a difficult figure with whom I agree and disagree in equal measure) has a great article about Apple's arrogance and insularity.

Both Apple and Google will soon be under assault, it seems certain, by larger competitors who have let their people blog. To think they can afford not to be present in the arena of the present (not just the future any more) is the kind of dangerous naivete bordering on hubris that could make them lose their competition, by default, by not even showing up.

Yet more support for what I wrote about Apple here and here. Apple will not change so long as Jobs is at the helm, but perhaps someday they'll gain more freedom to be human.
