    Dance Monkey Boy, Dance: Why Microsoft doesn't hold "Apple" style Press Conferences

    I'm sure that anyone that pays attention to news relating to Microsoft knows about what I'm about to tell you, but first, Why I'm posting this.

    I started a 2 year Web design course at my college, and part of the course is being able to give presentations, and my proffessors use Steve Jobs' press conferences as examples.

    One day, a student in my class asks why Microsoft doesn't give these types of conferences.

    He told us to Google search "Dance Monkey Boy Dance" and look at what comes up.

    I was surprised to find a Wikipedia entry: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dance_Monkeyboy

    Here's what it said:

    Dance Monkeyboy is an Internet meme and a widely-circulated video of Microsoft's CEO Steve Ballmer at an employee convention. The video features Ballmer dancing and screaming wildly to a song by Gloria Estefan for almost a minute. The video became immensly popular on the Internet, especially on sites like Slashdot where links to it are often included in articles relating to Microsoft.
    Here are some Linkx to the video in question:Keep in mind he did this infront of a Auditorium full of Microsoft employees at ITguy '04.

    Needless to say, He made a compleate ass of himself.

    That... was scary. I've just lost all faith in the corporate America. that sad thing is; someone had to have approved of that before the meeting and thought it was a good idea...

    WOW....that is something that I don't want to see again. That is why I own an Apple. I wouldn't want monkeys coming up with ideas for my computers.

    HA HA HA That's good... Believe it or not, I've seen something worse... The company I work for has huge conferences all the time... With thousands of people. Try seeing about 2,000 people just like that dancing for about 2 hours. Yeah. The exact reason I go to NONE of the conferences.
