As my wife reminds me, Paul's resignation manifesto reminds me of that classic stunt pulled by the JetBlue flight attendant who announced his resignation, grabbed a beer, opened the cabin door and slid down the chute onto the tarmac for all the world to see. The limelight followed.
Same will happen here. Paul reminds us in his resignation post that he is primarily a writer of novels. And, he himself concedes that the last couple weeks have given him plenty of fodder.
You can bet that this public resignation -- which is opening mouths around the tech world (including mine) -- ain't gonna hurt his future book sales ...
Nice play, Shakespeare!
