You know the chills you get when you're watching a good flick - the action is rising to a climax but our hero is down and out. The music spells the loss of good triumphing over evil. But you, yes, you, Mr. & Mrs. Movie Watcher just know that something has to turn. Movies don't end up with the bad guy winning, the zombies taking over or the world ending in a freak snow storm caused by ancient aliens.
And its at that moment when all hope is lost that something happens. A lone spectator begins to clap. The mad genius makes a mistake. The President of the United States gives a rousing speech on behalf of mankind to give it one last go against the alien invasion:
'"We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight! We're going to live on, we're going to survive.' Today we celebrate our independence day!"
YEAH! They will not take our wives or our freedom! They will not take me lucky charms! I will fight! I will innovate! I will go to SharePoint Conference 2014 in Vegas!
Wow - an awesome speech - much better than anything in real life because real life doesn't have moving musical scores rising in the background, rousing me to action! And Independence Day is so much better than the President's speech in Armageddon - a meteor barrelling towards earth is so less believable than Bill Pullman as President of the free world. Duh!
Its on this epic scale that Microsoft has updated its What is SharePoint video from boring old Monique of yore to this amazingly cool, chill inducing video:
You go Microsoft!
