Du har kunnat prata arbete med din gode vän i fler år. Ni har pratat arbete, vad ni gör, bygger och utvecklar. Sedan börjar din goda vän att jobba på Apple och gardinen går ned.

Nu blir det tyst, om jobbet. Din goda vän delar inte med sig, berättar inte – inte ens om du frågar mer direkt. Gardinen har gått ned.

Another friend of mine at Apple, who worked in an area relevant to some trouble we were having with NetNewsWire, wanted to look at the source code – and they had to go ask permission before they could even look.

I understand! I understand why Apple PR and legal departments are the way they are. But I still feel a loss to the community every time somebody I know goes to work at Apple.

There’s a curtain between us and them. Colorful, well-designed, made by lasers — but still a curtain.
