/shane: Sam Ruby turns down MS; declared non-person

In a stunning move of corporate hubris, a MS spokesperson has declared Sam Ruby is “not a real person“. Could this be retribution for Mr. Ruby’s refusal of their recent job offer, even though “it was generous financially“?

Or are consipracy theorists correct – Mr. Ruby is a fictional blogger who’s laconic and far-reaching blog links are merely generated by advanced text mining algorithms run on a discarded Deep Blue box in a secret skunkworks project?

Enquiring (human) minds want to know!
