Farewell, Fadell: Nest CEO Tony quits IoT biz


Mocking or pointed criticism?

<quote>Those businesses might have a vigorous debate internally, but showing any of that debate to the world is considering leaking confidential info considered "airing the dirty laundry".</quote>


Most organizations do not like their internal politics aired in public, and get very defensive when it happens. One must wonder if this employee was a 'sacrificial lamb' brought out to finally draw the wolf (the """incompetent""" C suite executive) from its lair.

Perhaps, in this case, the door was slammed violently shut as the CEO exited. (i.e. Higher ups pointing toward the door, and making sure it closed behind him.)
