I enjoyed the arch transformation of 'talent' to 'content'. It's true, there
isn't enough irony at MS...
"Billionaires have offices that many a mid-level insurance executive
would find inadequate. Even Bill Gates's would not suit a mildly
pretentious dentist. But my TV friend was embarrassed on my
behalf. "You're talent!" he cried (referring to my former moonlighting
job as a TV pundit, and omitting--I think--the ironic nuance with
which the term "talent" is normally infused in his industry). I
corrected him: "I used to be `talent.' Now I'm `content.'"
