Nadella's Email to Microsoft Employees

Satya Nadella is proving to be aggressive in his pursuit of remaking Microsoft's culture.  His latest email to employees hits all the right high notes and shows him to be the sort of visionary CEO the Redmond Giant has needed for many years now.

+Jeff Stevens to me e-mail is plenty antiquated (i.e., old-fashioned / outdated). Primarily because of its inefficiencies. Do I think its' dead? Or going away within the next 5 years not? Absolutely not, I think it has it's place in the professional workplace, but I've been quickly changing how I use different collaboration tools (i.e., Google Apps) within my enterprise. 

With all that said, I'm responding to this thread via social media platform, something I never would have seen come in my inbox.

Apparently the "Do Not Disturb" sign is ineffective in dissuading hotel employees from entering the room in which I'm working.  I wonder if have a nice, professional looking sign printed up that says, "Do Not Enter - Lethal Force Authorized", if that might not be more effective?

This, times 1000.  When I worked on the ambulance, patients would sometime be annoyed with me for wearing gloves.  My response was, "If you knew where my hands have been, you'd ask me to put on two pair!"
In many hospitals, paper towels and special trash bins even are put next to exit doors so people don't have to touch the handles. Over hundreds of years, the gesture evolved into the modern form of the handshake, and now represents an international symbol of greeting and departure, reconciliation, respect, friendship, peace, congratulations or formal agreement. In hospitals and doctor's offices, the handshake can make doctors appear empathetic ...

Never thought of it.  Good idea.

If I were a doctor or patient, I would have a prepared line, delivered confidently.  "I'd gladly shake your hand, but given the environment we're in, it's probably safer for both of us if we just say hello."

One of the funniest, most spot on articles I've read in years.  Shared by a friend who did so privately, so I'll not name him, but thanks to him for showing this to me!
  I read this email from a reader, and now I’ve spent the whole day checking all over my house to find my privilege. I don’t know, I must have misplaced it: Hi Matt, First I’d like to say that you are the absolute worst. Continue reading →

+John Lieske I fundamentally believe equality will not exist as long as people keep trying to push inequality as a thing. Things like affirmative action only preserve and extend inequality. They don't "compensate" for anything.

Privilege inequalities are based on a cultural perception that leads to unequal treatment. Reinforcing that women or minorities need extra help finding jobs or special treatment reinforces that perception, it doesn't help eliminate it. People need to focus on killing that perception, not trying to somehow "even the scales". In that regard, I feel Scalzi is part of the problem.

Also, another factor on this article, is that we don't know what set this Kira off about him to write the letter he was sent, but I'd certainly say the author's text was specifically addressing her conduct and assumptions. There was a LOT of ASSUME in that letter, from the looks of it. A lot of "you never"s in there. So I can maybe see some of where he's coming from.

But as I said above, he also makes dumb statements as well. It's two people interacting who can't speak to each other like normal people. Exaggerated cases of both sides.

+Choice Hotels thanks so much for coding your f***ing site in Flash Shockwave.  I really enjoy the slow load times when I'm traveling and the constant crashes in Chrome.  Oh, and the fact it blocks my password manager from operating correctly is just a delightful bonus!

My wife and I went on a Saturday night at about 10:30PM--prime hours for a NJ diner, but the place was nearly empty. There were literally more staff than customers, which should have told us something. I ordered the classic hamburger and my wife ordered a sliced roast beef sandwich and sweet potato fries. The food arrived in a reasonable amount of time. My hamburger appeared to be a frozen patty, like you get at the supermarket. I asked for medium well and the center was still quite pink. I would have sent it back, but the server was no where to be found. My fries looked to be machine cut, out of a bag. Not a bad thing necessarily, but they were greasy, barely warm, and not at all crisp. The serving size of the slaw was literally a tablespoon, in a tiny, paper cup. Just as well, as the slaw was dry and flavor free. My wife's sandwich looked OK. It was on wheat toast and was piled high with extremely rare, sliced roast beef. When I say rare, I mean it was oozing blood and cool--not exactly appetizing. Her ordered fries never arrived and again, no server to ask about them. I'm not sure how they managed it, but the roast beef was completely bland. It looked like roast beef, but it had no taste. A very uninspired dish. For desert, we had strawberry cheese cake. The serving was huge and we split it. By far, the best part of the meal. The diner itself is quite clean, bright, and feels sterile. Nothing to see here. We won't be going back.

My wife and I set up the appointment via the internet, off Mazda's corporate site. When we arrived at the local dealership, we were greeted promptly and in a friendly manner, without the usual feeling of being a pork chop in a pack of hungry dogs, so often encountered at a car lot. Dan Deuber was our salesman. He was well informed, even though the CX5 was a brand new model. He happily accommodated my wife's request to test drive it in a parking lot, as the traffic in the area had her a little uncomfortable. Dan answered all our questions honestly, even those that revealed a minor, less than ideal aspect of the car we were looking at. He was respectful toward my wife and included her in all the discussions--a rarity when buying a car. The price negotiation, although spirited, was conducted in a polite and professional manner. We settled on a figure that we were comfortable with and seemingly gave them enough profit to keep the lights on. They did not try to push us to "invest" in rust proofing, floor mat warranties, alien abduction insurance, or any of the other schemes to part a customer from his money that I've grown accustomed to over the years, when buying a car. This was by far and away the best car buying experience to date. Even without the free doughnuts in their service department, I'd recommend them to my friends. :-)

I had a toothache and they saw me the next morning. Very friendly, efficient, and helpful staff. The doctor herself is fantastic! She is always patient, never in a hurry, and is genuinely pleasant. Top that off with apparently being a very good dentist and you have a quite a great combination.
