Microsoft's Brandon Watson lost a bet, got a serious hair cut

And by haircut we mean had his head shaved by a bunch of fellow Microsoft employees.

Watson should be a familiar name  by now. He's the Director of Developer Experience at Microsoft, overseeing the roll-out of the tools and ecosystem that developers rely on to make our new software.

Long story short: in a bet on how many applications would be in the Marketplace on launch, he under-estimated. In turn, he lost his hair in a public event. Which he should have. Who under estimates? While you don't have to watch the whole video (nearly 13 mins), you can skip to the end for the good part.  What can we say? We love seeing the dorky/geeky side of Microsoft and them having some fun. So should you.
