Minimsft: Anonymous Microsoft Whistle Blower

The Insider is the true story of a tobacco executive,Jeffrey Wigand (played by Russell Crowe), who blows the whistle on the tobacco industry, the movie is deep and is amust watch for any serious person. In the real world, we have a whistle blower right in the middle of the Microsoft Campus, an employee, no one knows who he is (isn't that so cool) but hundreds of people comment on his blog, personally am fan of his criticism of Microsoft's management practises as well as its monolithic structure. In fact the statement his used in the About section of his blog is:

Let's slim down Microsoft into a lean, mean, efficient customer pleasing profit making machine! Mini-Microsoft, Mini-Microsoft, lean-and-mean!

The underlying message in his blog is MSFT (The Nasdaq name for Microsoft) is that it should be broken down into smaller but more efficient units. He knows not afraid to point out the inadequacies of Steve Ballmer and even goes ahead to criticise the products MSFT releases to the public.

You seriously need to read his blog, and so it is with much pleasure that I give you.....drum roll..moment of silence.......
