Mark Takes the Red Pill

My friend and co-worker Mark has announced that he has been assimilated into the b0rg. I’d congratulate him if I didn’t think he was nuts. Of course he is quite a bit younger than I am, so the lure of the red pill was a lot more attractive to him than it is for me. I suppose if I was still 33, getting a job with Microsoft might seem more like snagging the brass ring on the software developer merry-go-round to me as well (that and the fact that I’d never trade my current gig to become a small cog in such a big machine).  
Seriously, Mark will make a good little ‘softie, and they are lucky to have him. He will be joining the Visual Studio Team Architect team as a program manager next month.  Good luck Mark, we’ll miss you around here.
