Jason Calacanis recently said in one of his beta podcasts that he simply wouldn’t put up with office politics while he and his team were building Weblogs Inc.

I’ve always thought that anyone in business, from start-up to corporate, should have more important things to worry about than brown nosing.

Andy Monfried takes up a similar theme in an excellent post that counterpoints entrepreneurial mentality with corporate mentality.

I encourage companies to create a ‘politics free zone’ in their offices. A place where ideas can be shared with their managers in a arena FREE of ego’s and attitudes.

Perhaps this is why Calacanis seems happy to have quit AOL.
