LOL. It may seem kind of strange, and maybe a little dramatic in the eyes of the typical technology enthusiast but I like what Microsoft is doing.... As an X-ComputerCoder I think it is great to show people that there is more out there than just computer technology! Expand their horizons in what they can do with THEIR life.. When you work for a large coorporation you seem so unvaluable, you feel like a number among your co-workers. This is a great way to give people the sense of being somebody unique.
Theres a lot more to life than work/computer technology. :./
