Laughing at yourself for educational purposes…

Posted in Uncategorized by Simon Bisson on March 2, 2006

That Microsoft iPod packaging movie that’s doing the rounds?

Turns out it was an internal Microsoft presentation… Apparently it was produced to show what shouldn’t be done when designing packaging.

An interesting example of the power of parody as an educational tool.

    Thank you so much – I really needed some light relief today, and that sure gave it to me. As others have commented, one of the things that the MS-haters fail to appreciate is that the MS corporate culture is good at self-parody and humour. Always a good sign.
