While we don't worship with the local cult of permanent positivity, we're human, too. Thankfully, our tipsters should us love daily, and their spirit of giving warms our cold, cold hearts even more than bulldogs, so thanks. Hopefully Mark Zuckerberg finds humility in India, or at least a sense of humor like Brad Fitzpatrick's. Michael Arrington and Graydon Carter sure haven't. Ambition is a form of hubris, so show your love and let them go, Google. Or else there will be no room for the talent Microsoft wants to poach. Keeping delusional managers out of loyalty will lead to a terrible work environment that won't attract real sales talent. We certainly love Gawker's ad sales team at least as much as our tipsters, because there's no positive feedback like a paycheck.(Photo by Jim Reynolds)
