Microsoft-Change the World or Go Home is the Blue Monster’s tag line. This is the cartoon from Hugh Macleod over at Gaping Void that is appearing all over Microsoft campuses across the world as well as stuck on people’s laptops..
The headline works on a lot of different levels:
Microsoft telling its potential customers to change the world or go home.
Microsoft telling its employees to change the world or go home.
Microsoft employees telling their colleagues to change the world or go home.
Everybody else telling Microsoft to change the world or go home.
Everyone else telling their colleagues to change the world or go home.
And so forth.
I like this both for it’s striking visuals and also for what it says about Microsoft’s attitude. To me it says “We’re here, we’re big, we DO make a difference (for better or worse), we DO change the world” and shows an acknowledgement of their influence and a will to use it “for good”.
However, as with anything, the anti-MS brigade have got their own take on it!
Let me know what you think…
