Ballmer Bids Cringeworthy Farewell to Microsoft

Tom Warren reports for the Verge:

At one point during the meeting, Ballmer chose to play the song he used back at his first company meeting in 1983: Michael Jackson’s “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin'”. He then proceeded to jump and dance around the stage screaming at the top of his voice “the sound of Microsoft!” After the song ended, an emotional Ballmer paused to “enjoy this for a minute,” with tears visibly streaming down his face. “You work for the greatest company in the world, soak it in.”

I’m not sure anyone would want to soak in Ballmer’s dance-and-tears juice.
