The company meeting

The global Microsoft company meeting was quite the experience. There was a live event in an opera house in Seattle, but it was also broadcast worldwide by satellite, and available online to all 57,000 employees worldwide. I guess I shouldn't really be surprised that the production quality was so high, seeing as how so many people would be watching it... it felt like the Oscars, with video segments, interviews, applause signs, theme music, and so forth.

There was also a lot of singing, including a full-length music video about our business partners to the tune of "Bohemian Rhapsody." Even Red vs. Blue made an appearance to talk about Halo 2. And, of course, there was plenty of Bill adjusting his glasses and Steve screaming and waving his arms.

Video segments? Okay. Theme music? Okay. But applause signs? That must've been interesting.
