Not so Groovy - New comment on Where's Ray? Where's the Vista Campaign?
Alejandro Toledo has left a new comment on your post "Where's Ray? Where's the Vista Campaign?":
Here's a clue to the answer to your question. You said:
"I viewed it as a benefit and an affirmation of my good
decision to join such a groovy company as Microsoft."
The real fact is that unless you joined in the easly 80's
your employer is not a hip and groovy company.
You want groovy? Look elsewhere. There is nothing
Groovy left at Microsoft. Microsoft is the poster-boy
of the meaning of the words dork, square, etc.
Your hoped-for messiah Ray Ozzie knows this fact
better than you, obviously -- which is why he isn't
trying to sell you Ashlee Simpson as if she was Janis
Look at your president George W. Bush -- once you
lose your credibility you are finished. That is the
fate of Ray Ozzie, because he is working for MSFT.
But do you want him to walk down the plank and
jump off to his professional dead-end merrily fast?
The problem you have is you don't seem to get it
that Microsoft's products are not where the tech
industry and where the consumer market is going.
(But isn’t Ray all about the Groove.exe?)
