This diagram of the organizational chart of various companies is from Nick Wingfield’s NYT tech column today, Microsoft Overhauls, the Apple Way.

I find it both hilarious AND insightful:

Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

    Great graphic. Interesting that Fa(r)ceBook looks most like Bucky Fuller’s geodesic domes, which are the most resilient structurally when individual links fail. You can look at the others and think right away, “Uh oh, what if THIS link were to fail.” Some are so top-heavy it is laughable IMO. Not too many horizontal lines either (except FB).

    Back to Microsoft . . .

    NOW they realize they have an organizational problem?


    What hubris Gates unleashed on the world . . .

    Legal side of Oracle is hilarious. I also like the couple arms that snake out from the center of Apple and bypass management.

    Microsoft will be dysfunctional as long as Ballmer is running the show. Though, removing him wouldn’t guarantee a revival.

    Microsoft’s re-organization announcement reminded me of this Dilbert cartoon.

    Awesome, Microsoft visibly has problems. Apple is kind of intuitive though.
