Trawling around the web and found this, I'm definitely old (sigh). I think it's written in English (insert J-L-Picard facepalm).

The post is called 'Controller Sounds' - how pretentious!

Well, partially. She was only meeting the brief.

The bloke behind the farewell is more to blame as well as the folk in the shadows.

The BBC original remit was one of Public Service Broacasting.

Undoubtedly it had many flaws (which could be debated until the cows come home) but this whole "Sounds" business is a mess.

Why replace an entirely workable app, with a beta that has been with us for nearly twelve months and is still far from complete?:rolleyes:

Which is why the replacement will have a "new" strategy for Sounds.

This is a characteristic of many organisations:
1. Only ambitious people go after the 'top' jobs
2. Ambitious people need to leave a mark, get noticed, and move on, therefore
3. Ambitious people never walk into a job and decide "you know what, everything's running fine, I'm not going to change anything"

It creates a pendulum effect. If you don't like the way the place is being run, just wait for the next ambitious person to take over. It won't be long.
