Corporate Mind Control

[ #35809 ]
One of my old Uni buddies posted something on his blog recently that got me thinking. Apparently he became a Microsoft Regional Director.. To me that sounds like something to do with management stuff. It is in fact far worse. Apparently, Microsoft is giving up these fancy name tags to people in the community to get them to work for Microsoft without actually having them work for Microsoft. Giving out these kind of labels seems a bit like saying "Thank you for your effort in the community. You are now our bitch!". The blog is ofcourse biased towards everything Microsoft.

  • In what way are they "controlling" someone's mind exactly that is different than, say, opensource development? Aren't we all paid by status in the noosphere? (Here, have a gold star.)
