Microsoft CIO Gets The Axe
With a flick of the pitchfork, Microsoft's CIO Stuart Scott found himself cast out of Hell — er, Redmond, that is — and sent off to the unemployment office.
The Empire was busy this morning sanitizing the corporate site, noting the axing in his company bio and removing his contributions from company projects. Some reports have suggested that Scott may not have been perceived as particularly tied to the company.
Nobody is saying exactly what he did, other than the generic "violation of company policy." One can only wonder what "policy" he ran afoul of — is there one about being sane? — but then again, maybe he just wasn't ready for the Dark Side.
