    During a Square Board meeting, our newest Director Howard Schultz, pulled me aside and asked a simple question.

    “Why do you all call your customers ‘users’?

    What’s interesting is that I express this exact same idea and sentiment in my book enough in an essay titled Name Calling — Ihave posted this essay online for comparison.

    Nice to see others who’s work and business I respect picking up the torch.
