Someone else's blog

I have discovered a new blog. Having read a few archived posts at random, I think I am going to like it.
That blog mixes the technical with the personal much like this blog doesn't. My reaction to the linked post (also the current one at the time of writing) was:
Wow. That is incredibly professional and diplomatic.
The archives have posts that are more like what I might write in the corresponding situation (assuming I was in a good mood). Both the diplomatic and the less diplomatic posts avoid the mistake of characterizing tentacular, loosely coordinated organizations (such as Microsoft) as single entities with a consistent purpose. The author, Mike Shaver, is a founding member of the Mozilla Organization, which goes some way towards explaining this particular awareness.
