I received some responses on my Passport article.

It’s sort of interesting that the only person who defended Passport was a 10-year Microsoft employee — a person who I know, trust, like, and respect, but who, I’m afraid to say, has been living in Redmond too long to see things the way the rest of the world sees them.

About the author.

In 2000 I co-founded Fog Creek Software, where we created lots of cool things like the FogBugz bug tracker, Trello, and Glitch. I also worked with Jeff Atwood to create Stack Overflow and served as CEO of Stack Overflow from 2010-2019. Today I serve as the chairman of the board for Stack Overflow, Glitch, and HASH.
