Thought-of-the-day

This is my thought for today (those dudes at microsoft are pissing me off, so rant mode).

Corporate people are no longer people. They have become routines in the big algorithm that is their company.

Let's see if this catches up.

Curious, what have microsoft done lately to trigger a rant? Not disagreeing, just curious.

For me Facebook are being rather gay lately, same with Twitter and their censorship. Starbucks are cucks. And I can go on about a whole bunch of other corporations.

Celebrities too. They need to shut the fuck up.

Oh, and the CIA... what can I say.

A reason for this could be that the larger a company you work for the smaller you as a human become.

Imagine this:

Small company has 1 programmer.
If they hire another they will now have 2 and gained a growth in 100%

If you have 10 programmers and you hire yet another your growth will only be 10%

Keep using this idea and number and you can quickly see that in order for a large company to gain any growth they soon have to hir a lot of people to gain anything worth while.

If you have 100 programmers it will make little sense to hire number 101 as his work will be so small in comparison to the overall amount.

But, and this is the interesting part that might answer your question :-)

...its much easier to find a single good programmer to double the capasity for a small company than it is the the larger to find 100 good programmers.

Microsoft is in a position where they often have to hire 1000 of new workers and the chance of them all to be any good is very small.

This also means that the larger a company is, the lower its workers overall talent will be.

Microsoft has 114.000 employees, how many of those do you think is actually worth their pay check?
...and how little work do they actually do during a full work day?

So the math dont add up and therefore they need to become something else and that might as well be an algoritm that does absolutely nothing. (=null)

Some thoughts back at you :-)

Did two hours long windows 10 update disrupt your work flow in the most inconvenient time?
And all that the update did was reinstall candy crush soda saga that you uninstalled a minute after installing this bloatware-filled OS?

The rant comes from a communication problem.
I've been asking for quite some time a very simple question and no matter who answers (when someone does answer) all I get is corporate talk that systematically manages in so many sentences to not answer it while at the same time giving the impression it did.
I see this trend everywhere.

Facebook is helping the Pakistan government find people who "blaspheme", so they can be executed.

Fuck that.

I've worked for small companies and large companies. Large companies are definitely less efficient than smaller ones, in almost every respect.

I really don't know what the solution is, but it seems like once you get so large, even simple things seem to take much more effort and time than what should be required. Especially if it's a company that has a big turn around for employees.

And compound that a few times, if the company is not all in one central location.

Where are these quotes coming from? This thread is random without context.

Speaking of random... anyone heard about Cicada? That super-hard problem solving website that randomly pops up from time to time found on the deep web? Well apparently they put up a website a short while ago hinting at Vault 7 (you know the wikileaks recent leak). Now they've gone and put up a new website with a countdown on it. All interesting stuff. Check it.

I can tell you first hand from working at the HQ in Redmond, not as many as you would hope.
