Report: Google Exec Leaves a Conference: "I do not speak to small groups."

 2:36 pm on May 9, 2014 (gmt 0)

Small groups? It's the quality that counts. Sometimes you just have to grin an bear it.

I don't doubt this will be reported more widely because it's a Google Executive. I toned down the sensationalist headline.

According to eyewitnesses, Google product strategist Scott Jenson angrily stormed out of a conference in San Francisco Tuesday, 30 minutes before he was scheduled to deliver a keynote address—a week after inviting himself onto the program via Twitter.

“I am Google," he told a woman working at the registration desk of the IoT Expo. "I do not speak to small groups."Report: Google Exec Leaves a Conference: "I do not speak to small groups." [readwrite.com]

"I am Google"

WTF Scott has never met Matt?

Judging a group by its size is not only ignorant, but disrespectful.

Preface of "Google Code of Conduct":

"it’s also about doing the right thing more generally – following the law, acting honorably and treating each other with respect."

The article's headline seems to encapsulate all that is wrong with Google these days. Sounds like just another spoofer.

What an amazingly stupid thing to say. What if he was invited to address a closed session of the Cabinet?

A Reaper would explain his bad banners with a devastating insult before he ever made it back to the Chocolate Factory? :)

My post was a reply to the original quote, not to the immediately preceding post. I hope that was sufficiently clear ;)

lucy24, i read that as a reply to the original quote, but it reads kinda funny as a counterpoint.
unless you're jmcc... =8)

I say many amazingly stupid things. :) Perhaps I could get a job in the Choclate Factory too.

Seriously though, these product "strategists" and other true believers scare me. They only seem more clueful because others have not learned how little they really know. Well at least it wasn't more waffle about Google's "Knowledge Graph" Wikipedia scraper.

It's the "Google, c'est moi" line that scares me.

These numpties tend to be like that whatever the company. I blame the clueless "technology" churnalists (press release recyclers). Since the churnalists haven't much of a clue about technology, they consider these people to be important because they turn up at so many events and seminars. The real reason is that they are sent to these events and seminars because they are so utterly useless at anything other than PR. (Cynical ex-editor mode.) They are the equivalent of a court astrologer and just as reliable at predicting future trends. :)

This guy does not seem very good at PR...

Churnalism is not restricted to technology... its pretty bad in business and science as well, and probably more.
