When you hire a former CIA operations officer to be a VP at your tech company, you have to expect that he’ll bring a little of his spy training with him. Such is the case with Cisco VP Mike Quinn, who is so furious at a memo leaker inside the company that he has threatened to make tracking down that sonofabitch his new hobby.
When Mr. Quinn found out that a member of the Cisco “family” had leaked a memo regarding responses to a bit of negative press, he went all Tony Soprano on employees’ asses:
Is it possible that Microsoft is partially staffed by developers who are, literally, 12-year-old boys? Maybe we’re dealing with a Big situation, here? Because we’re pretty sure that’s the best possible explanation for this, from NetworkWorld:
“Some chucklehead working for Microsoft thought it would be funny to slip a thinly camouflaged sexist remark — “big boobs” — into software code that connects the Linux kernel to Microsoft’s HyperV virtualization product.”
We could easily work ourselves into a tizzy over this. But instead, we’ll take a cue from our unflappable high school principle and say: Guys, we work on the Internet. It’s going to take a lot more than some juvenile reference to titties to shock us.
