The Real Reason Behind All the Microsoft Bloggers? 

Or The Legion of Doom...

I just thought you would all like to know the truth behind the blogs here at Microsoft. There was something going on that you knew nothing about. At least for me, the blogs that I posted, the comments, the gags, the code snippets, had nothing to do with reaching out to the community.
...
Of course you would not. You know better. In fact, I suspect that a whole hoard of you banded together to try and unravel the mystery of this charade of glastnost that has being perpetrated upon the world. You probably suspected that something was up from the moment the first Microsoft bloggers took to the web, hitting hard like a platoon of soldiers storming onto the shore to capture that first beachhead. Who were these guys (and gals) anyway? What were they up to with their sly editorials and propaganda disguised as useful facts and humorous tidbits? You probably suspected their mission was to secure a host of converts that would help smooth the way toward enslavement of the remaining billions, surrendering to the juggernaut and total world domination. That would have made sense.
...
Or maybe I’m just blowing smoke.

Read the whole thing... its pretty funny. In fact, I'd generally recommend Matt Warren's blog. Its pretty amusing. I should really update my links some time.
