My wife is the first person who told me that writing is a way of thinking and therefore also a way of learning. If she’s correct, Microsoft faces trouble ahead, and I’m not referring to just the thousands of employees who are losing their jobs. A few days ago the Chronicle of Higher Education published this excellent commentary on the turgid and vapid prose the company’s new CEO, Satya Nadella. The style in which the memo is written sends a very bad message about corporate culture at Microsoft, and it’s a good demonstration of why writing skills matter in the post-college world.
