Strike That Out, Sam

[strike out] is a neat site that shows a little insight into Microsoft marketing folks in the form of Microsoft Word’s “Track Changes” feature. It looks like there are even people in Microsoft who don’t know how to use this feature correctly when posting a document online. The author of “Strike Out” found that 5% of the documents that tracked down on Microsoft’s site had deletions still tucked away within the document.

In truth, I don’t think that what you see on “Strike Out” is all that different from the types of edits that go on in marketing departments everywhere as marketeers try to hone their message for best response.
