On Carly Fiorina, AKA “HP: Invent”

Posted By on August 29, 2015

So, this post by Larry Correia got me thinking about Carly Fiorina. I don’t know how she plays to the mainstream US, because I haven’t talked with people about it, but every nerd over 30 knows the legend of how she came to HP and layed off a ton of folks, destroyed long term R&D all the while changing the slogan to HP:Invent. Now, this may not be a totally accurate characterization of what happened, but it was the perception at the time, and likely persists to this day. Apparently, CNN money says this may be an issue as well. Heck, she leaves and the stock goes up 7% at the news…
