News of Mark Hurd's implosion has me calling my assistant, today, making sure she's filling out my expense reports accurately. Fuck, that's some scary ass shit. Hurd's negotiating a $100MM deal and then -- ka-boom -- gotta go tell wifey you're only getting $28MM because you got caught with your hand in the cookie jar? HP needs a pioneeering new vision. It's not going to happen right now, but eventually it's gonna be Todd Bradley. I like Todd because he doesn't just drive innovation. He drives innovation "that matters to customers." Todd's on a roll. Check it... Todd's a baller. Todd makes bets and fuckin' puts his ass on the line. Often, he's right. Sometimes. he's not. But the guy's got moxy, and HP meeds that now more than ever, Plus, he's ethical. So he's not going to compromise himself, his family, and HP itself for personal indulgence. Hell, I believe in the guy. And whether he takes the top spot now or not, who cares. The time will come, trust me.
