Google’s Chief Privacy Counsel: “Don’t trust fat businessmen”

I’m paraphrasing from this odd letter Peter Fleischer sent to the Financial Times in response to a fashion article about men’s suits & ties. The key passage:

Men should lose their “business attire” and wear T-shirts to work. Wouldn’t you like to know whether your business partners are fit? Why should you trust a man in business if he abuses his own body?

An odd opinion (and perhaps just a joke), and now that it has been expressed to the world, I hope Mr. Fleischer can soon get back to more pressing issues.

  1. Michael, most interesting material; you’re doing a great service by doggedly pursuing all this.
    Interestingly, I came to you via the 3rd Carnival of Trust, hosted this month by the editor of BlawgReview. He has a good sense of humor, linking to your post on trusting fat businessmen. But in truth, the issues you’re writing about have a great deal to do with trust. Which is of interest to me, as trust is what I write about at, and on my blog Trust Matters.
    Thanks for some fine material.
