"We live in a world where everyone could have unlimited access to all the world's knowledge and culture."
Have you worked at a big corporation?
Developers aren't people, they're resources. Watch the movie anti-trust. It's not so far off except for the insane ending.
Anything personal at these companies is disregarded. Any sense of humanity. They're like, just put it out of your mind and FOCUS. You know what I mean?
That's how plots to movies like the one posted here get made. Culture turns into cult, and then the cultists don't understand how those outside the cult can think differently. No person with a balanced psychology could dream up a plot like that of the film posted here.
It's corporate training videos taken to a whole new level.
I am privy to Apple and Google dev/vendor programs as well by the way. I have an aversion to losing my company's Apple status more than Microsoft, so I will only say that Google's vendor programs are actually normal. They don't try to brainwash you or anything. Google treats vendors pretty much like normal people, and not used car salesman, and that's cool.
I am happy Vic Gundotra got away before they turned him into a cyborg/cyberman.
