Ballmer Dodged an Egg
There's a fairly famous story of Bill Gates being hit in the face by a pie over in Belgium. The story drew lots of laughs, but I was appalled. To me it's assault, pure and simple.
And I feel the exact same way about the Hungarian who tossed eggs at Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer a while back. Fortunately, the Microsoft protester had an arm worse than Baba Booey and missed every time. (And if you don't know who Baba Booey is, click here.)
The protester accused Microsoft of overcharging the Hungarian government through a non-competitive bid. Personally, I think it was the protestor who had egg on his face.
