eBay’s Johnny Ho appointed to Nike board …

Seriously? Given the state of the eBay marketplace under Johnny Ho, and the fact that the Ho would now have to be the most despised person on the planet, this Nike appointment has to be some sort of delayed April Fools Day joke. Obviously, these guys must all live in gated communities, with their own atmospheres, and never venture outside into the real world.

Hasn’t Nike’s chairman Knight, or anyone else at Nike, perused the performance of eBay’s stock price over the past seven years?

And then there is his later short LinkedIn “Thinking Day” chat—Ho, Ho, Ho …

"Even though people think I'm an expert at technological innovation, my own instinct for technology was frozen in place in 1982."—John Donahoe (26 Sep 2007) ...
