Purists vs. Corporatists: Round 2

Shel Israel and Josh Bernhoff are facing off on this important question this morning over on Shel’s blog – Global Neighborhoods:

Josh Bernhoff and the purists

I think this is an interesting and important discussion. I guess I find myself in the Purist camp. But I don’t like that label because it implies dogmatic adherence to principle regardless of outcome.

Perhaps a better label would be conversationalists. Because the gist of the argument is that corporations cannot have conversations – only people have conversations. And that is an eternal truth.
