There has been a lot written recently about Yahoo and Microsoft.  Right now, I won’t go in to that, but I did run across a fun page.  Microsoft recently joined with AQuantive and one of the key sets of technology and interesting people to work with are from Atlas which are amazing tools for Advertisers and publishers.  I have had the pleasure of working with these guys in my new role working on Media and Website Analytics on a new team called Audience Intelligence.  We are working to build a true end-to-end platform for interacting with customers through the internet… and there is a lot of work to do.  My role is to help people that own websites and other media to understand how customers interact with them so they can provide the best experiences. 

However, the real point of this post is to show that there is really some genuine benefit to Microsoft in bringing in these new folks with different points of view. Here is an example of what I mean. Check out this fun game from our friends in Atlas….

Beat The Man Down

This is not really your typical Microsoft recruiting piece and … well hopefully this kind of spirit is infusing Microsoft’s culture and will help us work better for everyone that uses our software.
