KOBO ON THE SUNNY SIDE
Link found on the Kobo Facebook discussion group:
Later, I spoke to Michael Serbinis, Kobo’s forty-something C.E.O., who had been described to me by one of his devoted followers as a “visionary.” Indeed, Serbinis sounds like he might make a good prophet, or at the very least a good evangelical preacher. Most weeks he holds a raucous “Town Hall,” where he gets his staff fired up for the war they are waging, casting Kobo as David facing Amazon’s Goliath. Attendees report that his energy at the events is infectious.
“What we’re doing is the first major change in publishing in hundreds of years,” he told me. “Our device is a great marketing tool, but we’re first and foremost a content company, and you can take our content to any device you want. For us, it’s about escape, adventure, learning. It’s about the books.”

As one of the techies.. i take exception to our being less fashionably dressed.
Perhaps we don't have the time in the morning to carefully pick out our outfits and do our hair because we're busy .. um... MAKING STUFF.
All in good fun.
P.S. I also take exception to 'paler'. pffftt....

Ha ha! Sameer I wondered if you were one of the techies - did you have a nice time at the party - even if you were looking pale and less fashionably dressed?

haha ! sameer, i don't work for kobo, but i'm something of a techie myself, and i'm holding up our reputation being very stylishly dressed (although i have to admit i am pretty pale). and i suspect quite a few of us around here are techies so you are in good company. i am sure the parties are a lot of fun regardless of how you're dressed !
thanks for posting this article, dmacmart, it's great to be a "fly on the wall" along with the reporter.
