I will not be saying anything about PepsiCo thing myself yet. I do have opinions (and decisions that come from them), but I am not revealing anything until I am ready (and it may end up being one of those horribly long posts, who knows).
But in the meantime I can put together this linkfest, so you can have a one-spot-shopping place for all the key posts about the event. I don’t think this is a complete collection, and I could not order them in a chronological order (too much work, so the order is random) but close enough – the key posts/articles are here, and the comment sections are very informative as well on all of the posts.
Update: You can find follow-ups by me (and by others, linked within) at:
