Word Soup

Joel on Software: "With 93,000 employees, nobody ever talks to anyone outside the company, so it's no surprise they've become a bizarre borg of 'KT', 'Steve B', 'v-team', 'high WHI', CSI, GM, BG, BMO (bowel movements?) and whatnot." - This leads to one of the things I absolutely hated while I was at Microsoft. They referred to people by their e-mail addresses. E.G. I would be 'robf' to people. It's so impersonal, definitely Borg-like. Go read the job description, I can't make heads or tails of it. It's definitely an internal post.

Side note: I love that Microsoft has CSI's, Crime Scene Investigators.
