@conservancy also, DHH got older, less abrasive and deep! Good :-) Apparently we're almost the same age, so that checks out too.
@isagalaev probably less abrasive now, but that story with major part of the staff resigning doesn’t speak up to that :)
@asolovyov I don't think that has to do anything with his abrasiveness. From what I understood back then, Basecamp's corporate position on banning internal political discussions sat wrong with many people, so the leadership made a very generous severance offer, and about 20 people took it up. I think the disagreement was handled as mature as it could.
@isagalaev I’m a little lazy to search up all links honestly, but DHH wrote that blog post publicly before showing it to employees. Given that this post was written in response to a really dumb internal conflict this does not seem mature to me.
@asolovyov I'm hazy on the details as well, you may be right. But hey, may be that was one of the lessons he learned :-)
