We Appreciate Your Shockingly Low Expectations



REDMOND, WA - The six board members spoke as one harmonized synthetic voice. They explained this new job would be expected to end in disgrace. It was his duty to absorb bad news - and very much bad news should be expected. I'll take it, said Joe.

He would be expected to randomly eliminate the jobs of family, friends and former co-workers. A new list will be calculated weekly. Thousands of people will not understand this sacrifice, and likely never forgive him. I'll take it, said Joe.

It was his duty to craft elaborate stories that sell algorithmically determined corporate goals - without understanding. These goals will seem counter-intuitive, even self-destructive. One cannot debate an algorithm, plans that go beyond a human lifetime. I'll take it, said Joe.
