Microsoft "The experiment: in 3 days, update Microsoft's branding and messaging." Impressive effort by Andrew Kim. Focusses on branding, products, advertising, packaging, messages, and a lot of other stuff.

Microsoft's internal culture is not in line with this kind of empty promise.


You could argue that the MS culture is perfectly in tune with empty promises ;)

I think it is always important to distinguish employees from a business and its strategy. Software Engineers are people with families. Some are jerks, some are nice no matter who they work to. If there is a problem with the company it is not because of its employees, it would be corporate strategy.

Ah yes, it's always their fault, all because of the others.
It's never about the conduct of employees, office politics that everybody engages in. And overall - systems of governance are never, ever, largely a reflection of their populations...
