Office Doofuses · I guess we’re friends with Mi­crosoft now, and even though we’re di­rect com­peti­tors in the office-suite space, be­cause we’re friends I’m gonna pass on some free ad­vice. Please show your de­vel­op­ers and cus­tomers some re­spect and get those incredibly-lame Great Mo­ments At Work ads off the air. The mes­sage, in­so­far as there is one, is that peo­ple who work in of­fices are clue­less doo­fus­es, and that be­ing around Mi­crosoft Of­fice will en­cour­age poor groom­ing, ju­ve­nile be­hav­ior, and gen­er­al­ly com­ing across like a com­plete mo­ron. Mi­crosoft is a smart com­pa­ny, and smart com­pa­nies shouldn’t run dumb ad­s. It dis­graces our whole pro­fes­sion.
