They're angry because they're hurt
I’m amazed at the level of anger and frustration over ArsDigita being vented (anonymously) over at F**kedcompany.com.
It proves my point, though: People are angry because they’re hurt. They’re hurt because Philip verbalized our deep professional and personal dreams.
We all felt “this place is different, this is the place I want to work for”. But then we were let down, and now we’re really angry.
