3,600 Microsoft Shoes Waiting to Drop

A profound thanks to all the people who spent time writing heart-felt and high-quality comments over the past few posts. When big events like this layoff happen at Microsoft, it shakes loose collective thoughts that have been building for a while, many of which exceed anything I've written here. There are some gems within the most recent 1,200+ comments. If you're not a typical Mini-Microsoft comment reader, you should spend some time reading over the last three posts' comments, the last two especially:Mini-Microsoft FY09Q2 Results + Town HallMini-Microsoft Microsoft Layoff 2009 - Now WhatMini-Microsoft Microsoft Layoff 2009 - Day 2Now you'll see some random and non-high-quality comments are in there, too. I had to flip moderation back on when the conversation about Microsoft H1Bs got downright nasty. I acknowledge there is concern about citizens losing their jobs at a company that has historically been on the forefront pushing for H1B visas. Going forward, I expect th…

BBC refuses to broadcast charity appeal for Gaza aid

Awaz Apni LONDON, England: The BBC is refusing to broadcast a plea from leading British charities for aid to Gaza, saying the ad would compromise the public broadcaster's appearance of impartiality.The Disasters Emergency Committee, which includes the British Red Cross, Oxfam, Save the Children and 10 other charities, plans to launch its appeal Monday.
British broadcasters, led by the BBC, originally declined to air the advert -- but in the face of criticism from government ministers and others, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5 changed their minds. CNN was not approached to broadcast the ad, a DEC spokesman said.
About 5,000 people demonstrated in front of the BBC's Broadcasting House in central London on Saturday over the broadcaster's stance. Seven people were arrested. The BBC is standing by its decision, director general Mark Thompson wrote in a blog post on the corporation's Web site.
"We concluded that we could not broadcast a free-standing appeal, no matter how ca…

Microsoft Layoff 2009 - Day 2

Okay, not a real post put more of a page break given the incredible number of comments from the first post on the 5,000 layoff cut-back (which is really 2,000 if you listen to Ballmer since we're hiring 3,000 people in the near-term, especially to help out with Search - take comfort in that you first 1,400 and you remaining 3,600).Feel free to post comments on any Day 2 experiences and safe feedback about the Town Hall after you've had a chance to watch it.If you're creating any Facebook groups because of this that you'd like highlighted please let me know in the comments and I'll roll them together. I'm especially interested in any networking groups for Microsofties + local tech companies given that some excellent contributors are affected by this, so some real talent is available.Personally, I feel like we've taken the Sword of Damocles and rammed it through a bunch of pink slips and now we intend to dangle that above the head of Microsoft for the next ye…

Microsoft Layoff 2009 - Now What?

22 January 2009: here we are at Microsoft: realigning resources and reducing costs. And laying people off. The day that has been rumored for a month now has come. And the staff reductions I've been wanting since starting this blog back in 2004 are here, though within an economic context I certainly Do Not Want. I wanted intelligent, well-thought-out leadership to have seen long ago that we've doubled our ranks far too fast and exceeded our ranks beyond what we can sustain (let alone need). Yet here we are now, in the choppy waters of the global economic crisis, being reactive rather than opportunistic. Microsoft should be better than this.This will start as a short post to kick off the biggest event at Microsoft that I can remember: severe cut-backs and staff reductions.Initial coverage:Microsoft Reports Second-Quarter Results Modest revenue growth despite difficult economy; announces cost management initiatives.Steve Ballmers Entire Memo to the Microsoft Troops About Layoffs …

Obama: Challenges real, but 'they will be met'

Awaz Apni WASHINGTON (CNewsworld.co.cc) -- Barack Obama delivered a sobering assessment of where America stands and a hopeful vision of what it can become during his inaugural address as the nation's 44th president."Today I say to you that the challenges we face are real. They are serious and they are many. They will not be met easily or in a short span of time," Obama told those gathered on the National Mall -- a crowd estimated at about 2 million -- and millions more watching on television and the Internet.
"But know this, America -- they will be met," he said.
Obama acknowledged the "nagging fear" of an imminent decline of the U.S. He firmly asserted that Americans were up to reversing the trends spawning that fear, whether they be social, economic or political.
"Greatness is never a given. It must be earned," he said, further proclaiming that people who question the scale of U.S. ambitions "have forgotten what this country has already …

The world can't wait for Obama new era

Awaz Apni WASHINGTON: Obama-fever swept the globe Tuesday carrying widespread public hopes that the incoming US president would lead the world into a new crisis-free era.In the hours before Barack Obama took the oath of office in Washington, foreign governments and new polls all showed huge support for the Democratic president even though many analysts have warned that expectations for his rule are unrealistic.Pictures of Obama dominated front pages and television news programmes around the world. A Spain's newspaper published a photo of Obama and his wife Michelle above the headline: "The American Dream Comes to Power"Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Zapatero said an "Obama effect" could shorten the global recession."We could see a rebound faster than expected, it is a question of confidence because the fundamentals of the global economy are good enough," added the socialist premier.German Chancellor Angela Merkel was looking forward to working clos…

FY09Q2 Results + Town Hall

FY09Q2: last time I speculated that the growing global economic crisis was going to be on the mind of the analysts. This time? Rumor resolution. God almighty, are you there? It's me Mini... along with all of Microsoft and every region in the world that benefits from Microsoft's employees. Please put this rumor about cutbacks to rest once and for all.Because, you know, when you have a couple of check-ups during the week and all the staff wants to do is dish on all the Microsoft layoff news and news they have heard from other Microsofties, things have just gone too far.What kind of interesting topics do you imagine might be covered during the day on this Thursday? Some items on my list include:Cost-efficiencies: what does Microsoft plan to do with respect to cost efficiencies within the current economic climate? Personally, I think they'll be veiled references to our continuous review system to ensure we move on the bottom 10% and that will have to serve as a wink-wink-nudge…

The first fold

As with so much in the world the first fold is the most important, you get the first fold even slightly misaligned or creased and you can forget getting fold 20 correct.

Well like the other billion folk in web universe i thought id better get a blog, well not just that, i do think i have something worth while to share. But Ive never been one to read other peoples random thoughts and so you wont get read many of mine (as if anyone really would want to anyways).
Its just that i do come across ways of doing things (in a coder by trade) that is new to me, interesting and sometimes useful, and so i thought i might as well share them with people, and maybe if I'm lucky they will find things useful that i found useful, we'll see. Actually the most useful thing i find about blogs are the comments, some guy tells you to solve a particular problem in this way on his blog and you see 10 posts below discussing the pro's and con's of the approach, that's what i like, there is nev…

سوات: نجی سکول نہ کھولنے کا اعلان

صوبہ سرحد کے ضلع سوات میں مقامی طالبان کی طرف سے لڑکیوں کے تعلیمی اداروں کو دی گئی مہلت کے خاتمے پر نجیتعلیمی اداروں نے لڑکیوں کے سکول عام تعطیلات کے بعد نہ کھولنے کا اعلان کیا ہے۔ سوات میں نجی تعلیمی اداروں کی تنظیم (پی ایم ایس اے ) کے چئیر مین احمد شاہ نے بی بی سی کو بتایا کہ سوات میں مقامی طالبان کی جانب سے لڑکیوں کے نجی تعلیمی اداروں کو بند کرنے کے حوالے سے دی گئی مہلت جمعرات سے ختم ہورہی ہے۔
انہوں نے کہا کہ چھٹیاں ختم ہونے کے بعد لڑکیوں کے سکول نہیں کھولے جائیں گے جب تک مقامی طالبان خود آکر ایف ایم پر اپنے فیصلے کے واپسی کا اعلان نہیں کرتے۔ انہوں نے کہا کہ اگر ہم تعلیمی ادارے کھول بھی دیں تب بھی والدین علاقے میں غیر یقینی صورتحال کے باعث اپنے بچوں کو سکول نہیں بھجیں گے۔
انہوں نے کہا کہ آج سے ضلع بھر میں تمام نجی تعلیمی ادارے موسم سرما کی تعطیلات کے لیے بھی بند ہورہے ہیں تاہم ان کی بندش کی بڑی وجہ طالبان کی طرف سے اعلان ہے جو آج سے نافذ العمل ہوگا۔

124 arrested in Pakistan as part of Mumbai attacks probe

Awaz Apni Islamabad: More than 100 people have been arrested in Pakistan as part of a crackdown on groups accused of having connections to last year's attacks in Mumbai, a Pakistani official said Thursday.Most of those arrested are alleged members of Lashkar-e-Taiba, the militant organization suspected of being behind the deadly attacks."We have arrested a total 124 mid-level and top leaders," Interior Ministry chief Rehman Malik said during a press conference on Thursday, according to a Reuters report.Pakistani authorities also closed several suspected militant training camps run by Lashkar-e-Taiba as part of the crackdown, which began in December after the United Nations Security Council declared that Jamaat-ud-Dawa, a Pakistani charity, was acting as a front for the banned militant group.Authorities also took steps against 20 offices, 87 schools, two libraries, seven religious schools and a handful of other organizations and websites linked to the charity.It was not i…

Famous comedian Shakeel Siddiqui beaten up in India

Awaz Apni MUMBAI: A prominent Pakistan’s television and stage actor Shakeel Siddiqui was beaten up by some Indian fundamentalist elements in Mumbai on Wednesday, Awaz Apni reported.Famous comedian Shakeel was expected to perform in the famous show ‘Comedy Circus’. For that purpose he was staying in Mumbai, but it seems a group of thugs belonging to Nationalist/fundamentalist Indian mindset has badly beaten the terrific comedian. At the moment it seems a horrible news, as Shakeel has been a famous person in India and was a source of bringing joy to million of faces all across the sub-continent.It will be interesting to see how this story unfolds and how it would affect the media relations between both the countries. Ghajini is just released in Pakistan after a slight delay and this horrific news is going to further affect the constant deteriorating situation between the two nuclear Nations.

India climbs down 26/11 suspects handover demand

Awaz Apni NEW DELHI: India seems to have climbed down on its demand to Pakistan for the handover of 26/11 suspects, as state's External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee said Thursday that Pakistan should convict the suspects if not hand them over."If not hand over to India, Pakistan must try and convict suspects," he said in an interview with an Indian TV channel.But for this, Pranab said, it is necessary that their trials should be carried out in a transparent manner.Meanwhile, the Indian Army Chief General Deepak Kapoor said all options are open, when it comes to the safety of the country. He spoke on Thursday, on the 61st Army Day. "Mumbai attacks tested our patience. While India prefers diplomatic options, all other options are also open to ensure the safety of our land and its citizens," he said.

Salman or Akshay better suited for Ghajini: Aamir

Awaz Apni MUMBAI: Aamir Khan, who has got rave reviews for his film "Ghajini", says he felt someone well- built like Salman Khan or Akshay Kumar was more suited for the lead role."When I was first offered the film, I was sceptic and felt that Salman or Akshay with a well-built body could do better. But, it was Surya, the lead actor in the Tamil version, who convinced me that only I could do justice to the role. That is how I got the confidence to go ahead," Aamir said.The actor, who turned director with the critically acclaimed "Taare Zameen Par", said when he reads a script he likes to react to it like any movie-goer."For me, the feeling that my hard work has been appreciated is priceless as I go by my instinct while choosing a script.

Obama preparing order to close Gitmo: Advisor

Awaz Apni WASHINGTON: President-elect Barack Obama is preparing to issue an executive order his first week in office — and perhaps his first day — to close the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, according to two presidential transition team advisers.It's unlikely the detention facility at the Navy base in Cuba will be closed anytime soon. In an interview last weekend, Obama said it would be "a challenge" to close it even within the first 100 days of his administration.But the order, which one adviser said could be issued as early as Jan. 20, would start the process of deciding what to do with the estimated 250 al-Qaida and Taliban suspects and potential witnesses who are being held there. Most have not been charged with a crime.The Guantanamo directive would be one of a series of executive orders Obama is planning to issue shortly after he takes office next Tuesday, according to the two advisers. Also expected is an executive order about certain interrogation method…

India has provided info, not proofs: PM Gilani

Awaz Apni ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani on Tuesday said that India has not given Islamabad any evidence on Mumbai terroist attacks but just information.

"All that has been received from India is some information. I say information because these are not evidence," Gilani said while giving a policy statement in the National Assembly.

He said the information received on January 5 needs to be carefully examined which has been sent to the Ministry of Interior for necessary inquiry in accordance with the law.
The results of the inquiry, the Prime Minister added, will be shared with the government of India in due course of time.
"We are prepared to cooperate with India to uncover full facts and hence offered to India for joint inquiry."
India has, however, not responded to Pakistan's proposals and hoped they will see merit in it and accept joint inquiry, he added.
"Serious sustained and pragmatic cooperation is the way forward."
