Eric over at Ideas on Ideas wrote a detailed post about how Microsoft could reposition itself to appear less stodgy and scary for the consumers of tomorrow -- er, today. (Or yesterday?)

The piece also includes some notes for Steve Ballmer.

Also, maybe Microsoft could learn a little about loosening up by examining its fan spoofs.
