You know, I said I wasn't going to link to Always-On, but I've changed my mind. I was reading Always-On (I have a few brain cells left and I'd like to kill them) and I noticed an article by Red Herring founder Tony Perkins defending tech banker Frank Quattrone. Perkins notes that people have "run into Frank Quattrone carrying food, distributing cookies, and hauling the trash out for AIDS charities, Girl Scouts, museums that serve children, and public and private schools." Perkins goes on to say that the bankers aren't solely to blame for the Internet bubble, and I don't disagree with that, but I'm looking forward to hearing the Girl-Scout-trash-hauler defense when Mr. Quattrone tries to explain why his IPO allocations to certain parties were well above the legal limits.
I am a friend of Frank [Always-On]
