A question of Anonymity...
This afternoon I received this message from Bruce at "The Enterprise Software Observer" (If you have a few minutes he has a great blog at: http://www.esofto.com)
"Hey CRM Guy!
I was told you are really a competitor of salesforce.com. Is that true? Would you be willing to reveal who you work for, on a confidential or public basis, whichever works for you?

Sorry Bruce, no can do!... While it's not true, (playing devil's advocate for a moment) I guess you never really know, I could be a competitor… or I could be a Salesforce employee tired of all the lies (ooh the drama!)... maybe my real name is Larry Elison and I'm typing from the captain's chair of my yacht... or I could be from a big salesforce implementation and would be risking my employment if were to disclose my name or the name of my employer (the risk is real whether done in a private or public forum)...
Anonymity is the safer bet so, you be the judge…
