There's nothing worse, in my view, than dogma. So you have faith - good for you. You have opinions you'd like to share - great, build a blog for nobody to read. But don't belligerently claim that your view is the only right view, the only possible view. The dogma of Microsoft's latest marketing foray: Ethical fair trade - you knew it made sense until MS embraced it (The Register) takes me beyond incandescent fury right back round the dial to laughable irony at the thought of Microserfs comparing themselves to 3rd world coffee growers.
I'm still not sure whether to take Microsoft's PR as dangerously delusional about the state of the world and their position in it, or whether it's all some carefully calculated manipulation. It's all gone a bit Bush Administration...
