Why are we here?
You can find lots of answers, and "making money" seems to crop up frequently, at least in informal conversations. Some of you know I used to work at Hewlett-Packard. At least at the time, it was governed to a large degree by "Bill and Dave stories": tales of how Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard responded in certain situations.
Today, thanks to Tom von Alten's note on Corporate blogging, I discovered Anna Mancini's blog called From the HP Archives… (she's the HP archivist) and this Dave Packard Quote.
Why are you in business? Why is your company in business? What is your contribution to society?
