The problem are pure business guys who understand everything the MBA tought them, but don't have a true appreciation for the type if business they are running.
That is true for almost everyone working for a company. When you look for a job, you look for something that is somewhat related to your interests and knowledge. It's never your dream or exactly what you wanted to do.. but it's close enough. How do you know that the MBA's don't feel the same way? I think this kind of thinking is exactly the problem geeks have about other people - putting down their knowledge or interests.
