I found a link to this article from the Merc at Slashdot. It discusses the new policy at Apple prohibiting the listing of individual credits on Apple products (unlike many companies, at Apple, many products listed their individual contributors). There were two items of interest in the story. One was the theory that paranoia about outside recruiting could have prompted this move. I think this is likely — at one place I used to work, we were prohibited from providing our job titles in our voice mail greetings in order to thwart outside recruiters. The second is that easter eggs are discussed as though including them in software is a practice largely associated with Apple. Most software has easter eggs, and in fact, Microsoft engineers are the master of the easter egg. The easter eggs in Microsoft Excel are downright amazing.
