A close friend of mine recently blogged about an upcoming feature of an Oracle product...let's call it OEM. So, in his zeal to discuss the latest, greatest and the new technology in OEM, when a product manager sent him an email and asked about how he knew about the new features, my friend removed his post. Was that a wise move or did it display a lack of courage? Who's to say...maybe both? The real downside is that there was an interesting conversation between him and an Oak Table member I was enjoying. The lessons we should learn from this are, "Secret information isn't always declared so." The other lesson is..."He who has the most lawyers wins arguments before they begin."
