Dan Woodman bled for Microsoft—literally. He got a tattoo with their Blue Monster mascot and slogan “Change the World or Go Home.” But his loyalty could not save him from being laid off.
If it were me, I would be in an alley somewhere using my last $US20 to have the tattoo carved off my arm by a drifter weilding a piece of broken glass—but not Dan. He remains optimistic:
Working at Microsoft has been the greatest experience of my life and I have no desire to forget about it. And even if I don’t get back into Microsoft right away (which is, by the way, my plan!), then I have a reminder that even outside of Microsoft, I need to do my best to change the world every single day.
I have to give the guy credit for staying so upbeat in the face of such disappointment. Keep your chin up brother—it could be worse. You could be this guy. [Dan Woodman via Crunchgear via Boing Boing Gadgets]
