Salesforce ... to the Dark Side

Tom Foremski just shared an interesting story err, rumor about a disturbing shares unloading.

I think all of us can empathize with Mr. Benioff (not in terms of money, of course) but with regards to losing interests in something once it kind of peaks. If there is one more personal thing to keep up aside from wits and ethics, it's interest. Sure seems like Oracle's playing emperor to make sure Mr. Benioff turns into Vader fast. The Oracle Empire.

So how do CEOs and companies maintain that interest for value creation and innovation?

On the Side:
Grateful for Mr. Foremski for giving me an invite to test Lunarr. Really haven't touched it yet but was floored by the demo and possibilities. It isn't working at full speed yet but it's got potential.
