Ray Ozzie's Corporatespeak

That’s Microsoft for you, right there. It’s apparently a memo on the state of Microsoft, but worded in such a way that makes it difficult to understand what he’s getting at. I guess Microsoft didn’t get the memo that transparency doesn’t only mean writing about your company, it also means the consumer has to understand what the hell you’re getting at. It still puzzles me why corporate suits choose to communicated in such a wordy, bullshit-laced way. Only place this kind of wording would be useful for is on an English final that you didn’t study for at all. In contrast to that crap, see Panic’s blog, which is clearly worded and engaging.
