Manholes

June 26, 2007

Oh, this is good. Apart from the slugline under the title of the blog – Proudly looking like a web site from 1996, since 2007., this post is right on the money. I think I have found my mantra for the week –

Microsoft’s metric for intelligence was the ability to solve logic puzzles.
(I don’t know if the new, MBA-heavy Microsoft still does this, but I do know this is how Microsoft in its heyday worked.)
For example, a classic Microsoft interview question was: “Why is a manhole cover round?”
The right answer, of course, is, “Who cares? Are we in the manhole business?”
(Followed by twisting in your chair to look all around, getting up, and leaving.).

Good stuff.
