Trust is built in drops and lost in buckets

by Volker Weber

There was a Sonos leak yesterday, and it bothered me. It bothered me a lot.

Why did it bother me? The information was leaked by a person I would have trusted. A person who knows exactly what he is doing. Somebody who knows about NDAs, has signed many, and still goes ahead breaching one because he did not sign it himself.

If you trust me with information that should not be published, I will not publish it. I never did, I never will.

And that is why you never need me to sign an NDA.


That's journalism. News will be published. I don't think he did anything wrong. It looks like he didn't break any laws or violate any contractual agreements. I would therefore continue to place my full trust in him.

Sonos ignores the cultural idiosyncrasies of the countries in which they sell their goods more and more aggressively. Why should they be spared? The nice guys in the next room, apparently, they're not. Or no longer. My sympathy is limited.

Your personal way of building trust and complying with agreements isn't affected by the incident, is it?

Absolutely not.

Ceci n'est pas un blog

I explain difficult concepts in simple ways. For free, and for money. Clue procurement and bullshit detection.
