I Knew Nothing

"In the wake of Patricia Dunn's resignation, Wired's Fred Vogelstein walked away less than impressed with HP CEO's Mark Hurd's spying mea culpa. He says it smacked more of standard corporate ass covering than leadership, especially coming 3 weeks after the scandal broke. His sentiments are echoed in Computerworld's Culture of Evasion, which was written before Hurd mounted an I-knew-nothing-defense. Hurd claims that he bailed out on a meeting that approved the spying, neglected to read the spying report directed to him, and was clueless about the tracer technology employed in the reporter-baiting false e-mail he personally gave thumbs-up to."

This is how enron was handled too. I knew nothing. Did nothing. Saw nothing.

Yet these people make enormous amounts of money for apparently doing nothing. Either they guilty or incompetant. It seems they don't mind looking like idiots to cover their ass. I think HP should fire him and aks for his salary back.

I think the CEO didn't want a repeat of what happened in Hungary.

There need to be more cases of corporate defenestration.
