I've always admired ArsDigita for their refreshingly pragmatic and solidly technical approach to the software business. How unfortunate that a poster child for enlightened open source software product development could be so badly mangled unenlightened executives. MBA wielding morons like these guys are the scourge of corporate America. They calcify the operation of large corporations with their incessant empire building and wreak havoc in small ones as illustrated in Philip's depressingly sad tale. I wonder if Shakespeare would have gone easier on lawyers if MBAs had existed in Merry Old England.
