Microsoft CEO's sure can party

An article in the National Post talks about the mpeg video of Steve Ballmer circulating on the Net. Ballmer, trying to get a Microsoft engagement started by jumping around a stage with Gloria Estefan blasting in the background, yells "Come on, come on, get up!" before exclaiming, "I LOVE THIS COMPANY!" Here's what others were quoted as saying in response to the video: Lucy Kellaway, a management columnist for London's Financial Times, is profoundly disappointed by Mr. Ballmer's conduct. "When a morale-raising exercise involves mass hysteria it leaves me feeling uncomfortable," she wrote this week. "I have no doubt that Steve Ballmer loves his company. But why should he hire a hall, fill it with people and shout and scream the message at them is beyond me."
