Tony Isaac writes "A funny take on how all the biggest tech companies are organized from designer Manu Cornet, via Foursquare product chief Alex Rainert. Rainert noted, 'These are really great though I imagine there’s a bit more centralized gravitational pull at Facebook than this one suggests.'"

Until the Google diagram looks more like the Microsoft diagram?

I imagine it looks like a bunch of guys sitting on a couch drinking beer, eating pizza, and playing X-Box.

Is Apple's supposed to look like an apple? (0)

It looks round so it could be, but then again the bite and leaf seem to be missing.

Apple's shape should of course have been a pyramid, with Steve Jobs at the top. But because that would look all evil and vorporate, they ended up with a fucking mandala, which iss as about as close to the truth as if they'd shown Oraqcle like a cute puppy with flowers in its hair.

OK, I like the Microsoft one with each division battling each other. Maybe Oracle's lawyer-happy org is a dig at their lawsuits. I don't really get the humor in the other charts.

Amazon's chart is a binary tree, Facebook's is a "social network", Apple is the Cult of Jobs, and Google's chart is very complicated, I guess the number of parent nodes determines the EmployeeRank :-)

I noticed Amazon's binary tree, but I don't understands how that connects to Amazon's practices.

It's a tree. Amazon. Tree.

If Apple wasn't a tree I don't see why Amazon should be.
