Wouldn’t it be great if the most prominent names in the IT infrastructure industry had a place to unwind, blow off steam, and speak their minds for a change? And wouldn’t you love reading that blog?

Sadly, this will never happen. Between the SEC and shareholder lawsuits, market maneuvering and posturing, and plain old ignorance of the social media world, no real IT industry leader would ever be that transparent.

We at Gestalt IT won’t let that stop us, though.

Allow me to introduce our newest category: Industry Confidential is satirical take on the IT industry in the imagined words of its renowned leaders. Read it here, or subscribe via email or your favorite RSS reader!

We’re starting out with the imagined thoughts of one of the industry’s most colorful characters: EMC’s “Don Joey” Tucci, addressing HP’s Mark Hurd! But watch out: Anyone is fair game!

Notice: Industry Confidential is satire. It is written by a variety of industry insiders, none of whom are identified here. All posts contained in this category are fiction. Any resemblance to true persons, thoughts, or events is purely coincidental. Thanks to Fake Steve for inspiring this game!
