PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless It's a long read - but totally and utterly worth it. After interviewing ten former and current Nokia employees, and combining their insider information with publicly available information, Sampsa Kurri has written a long and detailed article about the history of Maemo and MeeGo within Nokia, and everything that went wrong - which is a lot. It's sad tale, one that reads almost like a manual on how to not run a large company. Still, between the bad decisions and frustrations, there's a red thread of hope that leads to Jolla.

Why?


Because it is managements very *job* to make sure things work well and goals are met.

Many engineers knowingly exploit and thrive under bad management and fear good management.


This is a management failure. If they did their job this situation would not exist.
