The software maker has agreed to acquire GitHub, the code-repository company popular with many software developers, and could announce the deal as soon as Monday, according to people familiar with the matter.
I guess there is a fair skepticism over the acquisition. Despite they didn’t screw up linkedin yet. They however did ruin Skype, which was an enterprise instant messenger and wildly popular everywhere, and turned it into a cheap snapchat wanna-be clone.
Nat Friedman, Future Github CEO
The Octocat is out of the bag: GitHub is joining Microsoft and I will become the new CEO when the deal closes later this year. I’m confident that this change will be great for GitHub and developers around the world, and I wanted to take the opportunity to introduce myself.
Who am I? My name is Nat and I’ve been a developer since I was six. I’ve been active in open source since the 90s when I discovered Linux.
I’m not asking for your trust, but I’m committed to earning it. I can’t wait to help make the GitHub platform and community that’s special to all of us even greater.
A perfectly proof-read, assuring and satisfactory post-acquisition introductory letter.
I guess the best CEOs are those who are more capable of addressing the ‘uncertainty’ .. we all are confronted by uncertainty at every point .. yet not everyone can cope with it .. in a manner that minimizes the risk while making sure maximum advantage.
I’ll steal you in a broad daylight,
in front of everyone.
I am a Batman,
I obey no rules when in love or at war.
I am a fire
I will set you ablaze
You will burn to ashes
I am a light
I will immerse you
You will never escape
Apart from the healthy and generously served food, one would instantly notice, the tranquility and peace of mind, among these people. 50s to 80s was I guess the golden age of humanity, It had achieved technological advances, yet life was slow-paced, less distractions, plenty of time for leisure and making babies too.

I don’t get its point at least as yet. Wikipedia works because there wasn’t a free sober extensive alternative available., on the contrary, there are billions of way to get news and authentic ones too. So I don’t see the point as yet. The blogging tried to revolutionize the citizen journalism., later on Twitter and the latest failed attempt was Medium1, at the end of the day, it’s painfully time-consuming and physically tiresome with little to no rewards. Comparing it to Wikipedia is comparing Apples to Oranges.

The simple answer is Google’s leadership profoundly betrayed the longtime personal trust and friendship of Apple’s leadership in stealing what Steve Jobs believed were Apple’s most prized possessions. The fuller answer is below, in a telling timeline of the once exceptionally-close Apple-Google relationship.
In an explosive new allegation, a renowned architect has accused Google of racketeering, saying in a lawsuit the company has a pattern of stealing trade secrets from people it first invites to collaborate. Source
One would guess it’s a coincidence, but then you realize it isn’t.
My lawyers are very much convinced, that it’s a direct, personal attack on me.
