Here’s the situation. A company has a new large office in Palo Alto. The company is one of the best-known companies in the world, used daily by hundreds of millions of customers… yet it hides its name.
Yep, the corporation with no name.
From the street, there is no sign. No indication who or what this company is.
They shuttle their thousands of workers to their offices by bus. But their buses have no logo…
What’s going on?
Everyone outside of Silicon Valley loves this company. They think it’d be ever so wonderful to work there; it’d be like to work at Willie Wonka’s Chocolate Factory: bean bags, climbing walls, free kale smoothies, dog massage, and fun, fun, fun!
But in Silicon Valley… there’s a different story with dark clouds over this company. Is this Mordor?
No, but it’s close.It earns tens of billions, yet uses legal SWAT teams so it pays only 1% income tax. It is deeply involved in massive surveillance. The company tries to change city laws to its own profit. Its thousands of employees are wrecking the culture of San Francisco.
So… the company figures it’s just better if they didn’t put their name on their buses and new buildings.
Yes, it’s the Corporation that Dares Not Speak Its Name.
