I asked Joel to post it, but he's hesitant for some reason...
Fog Creek Customer Service to me
Joel passed along your email and asked me to get back to you.
We don't have it online unfortunately... although you're the 3rd to ask!
If there's any way I can help you further, please let me know.
This video was terrible and should never ever be released to the public.
I find it personally offensive and controversial in numerous ways, and with its extremely high production quality it is poised to spread like a virus over the world wide web.
The effects of this could be devastating:
Fog Creek Software, who is already flaunting how comfortable and cool they make their developers, stand to represent themselves as people who both manage developers and have a sense of humor. This puts tremendous pressure on both developers and managers to act human.
By drawing parallels to a popular television show and character, and by focusing on several aspects of developer culture that are not mired in technical lexicon, this video may actually be found humorous to non-developers.
This video makes it very clear, even if thinly veiled in tasteless humor, that people without Asperger's or other analogous social disorders are disadvantaged as potential employees. I have tried in vain efforts to make myself more marketable, to force myself to understand your world of lolcats and 4chan but I can not crack this glass ceiling. The prejudice needs to stop, not be fueled by dissemination of this video.
I vote an emphatic NO. You should be ashamed of yourselves.
Found this very very average copy on YouTube - you can't see much but at least you can hear it.
I attended the devdays Boston event and would love a copy of this video.
I think everyone should pressure Joel to post it. :)
I think the intro demo is going to become Volume 7 - Management, of the Make Better Software training series. That's why it hasn't been posted.
