Ouch.  And, again: ouch.  Microsoft has launched a broad insult called “Hey Genius, we want you“, at pretty much every single talented young developer they can hit.  (Hat tip to Mike Barrett for pointing me to Deb Perelmen’s post on this).

On the one hand, kudos for making something that truly sucks.  On the other: wtf were they thinking?  If you ever catch me trying something like this out, feel free to swing by and slap me, ‘cus I’ll clearly have cracked up.

(ps – hey smarty, we want you, and we promise to actually treat you all dignified and stuff…)
