Two of my coworkers, including our dev manager, got up at 3 AM Saturday morning to audition for The Apprentice, the hit NBC show that’s a smash hit in my group.
They even made it into the local newspaper:
Robert Parker and Amit Kumar, software developers at Microsoft, said they stumbled onto the show one night when they were working late. They sat down in a conference room to share a pizza, flipped the channel to “The Apprentice” and were instantly hooked.
Now, they said, about 20 people pile into the conference room to watch the show every Thursday night at 9.
“You can find little nuggets that resonate at work,” Parker said, “sort of like `Dilbert’ resonates with so many people in the valley. People afterward will phone you and ask what you think.”
As for the show itself, my money’s on Troy.
