Scoble has been talking about Microsoft’s engineering culture recently.
Don’t miss Ballmer’s question here: “[You’ve got to ask] could Google do whatever it is they’re hoping to buy without paying $1.6 billion?” That’s Microsoft’s engineering culture coming through. Clearly Ballmer believes he can build YouTube for less.
Engineering culture is just another word for pride. Arrogance. Why try and beat the people who are clearly the best? Why try and beat people at a game you’ve never played when that’s all your competition plays?
