Today, Bill Gates (aka Bill of Borg) will accept an honorary knighthood from the Queen of England. Never mind that his company seems to be lately under terribly scrutiny from all corners for their business practices. Never mind that his company is basically engineered to crush any opposition, and if that doesn’t work, acquire them, and then shelve or steal their ideas. Never mind that his company is propagating a potential computerized doomsday with its extreme market penetration and slowness to react to threats caused by that penetration.
I’m not a big fan of honoring someone for playing dirty, killing competition, lacking innovation, and being good at just those things.
So, at the end of the day, Bill can now not only buy the world, but we’ll have to say “Sir” when we ask “Do you want fries with that?”
