The biggest rubes, boobs, and noobs of 2006 Tweet
The year 2006 is almost history, so this is the time for awards. I like this one, presented yesterday by one Robert X. Cringely in Cringeville: The MOONies, honoring the most Morally Obtuse, Offensive, and Noxious behavior in high tech.
This year’s MOONie winners will receive a handsome statuette of Steve Ballmer bending over and dropping his trousers, affectionately known around Redmond as The Google Salute. Along the way a few tips of the Cringely fedora to deserving folks who made the tech world a better place.
So without further ado ...: The biggest rubes, boobs, and noobs of 2006, tirelessly seeking out new lows in high tech
