Totally bogus, dude!
I see projects being built with concrete every day!
I'm going to start accosting random people in the street, "We have to stop them! We have to stop them from using concrete!!!"
I think I will dress as a clown to more effectively get their attention!
Thanks, Slashdot, for my new summer project!
I watched a single episode of The Big Bang Theory. It was about a "Magic the Gathering"-esque contest between Will Wheaton (as himself) and Horrible Geek Guy (Sheldon?). It was obvious that none of the writers on the show had the faintest idea about how Collectible Card Games worked, just knew they were something competitive that gross nerds did. Seriously, the portrayal of a CCG was embarrassingly bad, kind of like that CSI Miami episode about Grand Theft Auto. (I'll admit, it didn't posit any theories that CCGs would cause you to go on a killing spree, but if you have to be a person like that Bazinga guy, why wouldn't you?)
Anyway, Horrible Geek Guy gets his comeuppance for liking Star Trek and Collectible Card Games, so I guess justice was finally well-served to all those awful nerds out there.

Padma the Programmer, however, is a name with potential.
Two things that are very important to the Microsoft philosophy are "generating goodwill" and "replacing proprietary bits." Why here's a clip (in Spanish!) from the Simpson's demonstrating this philosophy in action!
If Kodack rose from it's grave, I'm sure it would boost employment.... in the People's Republic of China!
Flanian Pobble Beads... can only be exchanged for Flanian Pobble Beads. So, I suppose that choice is just an improbable wish. Fire up the Heart of Gold, and maybe...
"He's a straight shooter with upper management written all over him."
"How badly BB got shafted by that loan is determined by how desperate they were when they took it."
On a level of desperation going from 1 - 10, I'm going to go with "Vlad the Impaler" as far as shafting is concerned.

" And so far, we've seen no evidence whatsoever there's any contrition or accepting that what they did was going to piss off everyone else."
I'd say sneering contempt rather than contrition.
