Jupiter to Microsoft and Back

Going to Jupiter and back seems like a long trip, but not if you're analyst Michael Gartenberg.

Gartenberg recently left a cushy job at JupiterResearch to join Microsoft as an evangelist. Apparently, Mike doesn't quite have the necessary Redmond religion; he no sooner got there than he turned around and went back to Jupiter (here's Mike's blog).

I defended Gartenberg against critics who called him a sellout and a corporate shill (some of my best friends are sellouts and corporate shills!). Now I don't know what to think. I do, though, wonder what the heck happened during those few days he spent at Microsoft!
