George Parker: The Bullshit Meter Is Still In The Red Zone!

In my time, Ive heard enough corporate bullshit speak to sink the Bismarck (historical reference for the smart kids.) And the higher you go up the management chain of command, the worse it gets. This is true of all companies that unfailingly staff their upper echelons with the end products of the MBA sausage machine. It is however, particularly bad in the geekdom that thrives in the fertile soil of Silicon Valley. The first time someone in that part of the world said they could resonate to the stuff I was showing in a presentation, I had no idea what he meant. When I finally realized he meant that he liked it, I was tempted to ask him why the fuck he didnt say so in plain English. But, as this was a new business presentation, I wisely decided to keep my pie hole shut.
