Salesforce Tower, currently under construction, has set records in terms of height (it will be the tallest building in San Francisco and tallest office building west of Chicago) as well as commercial rent (CEO Marc Benioff is paying $1 billion to occupy the lower 30 floors and penthouse.) The building has also achieved new heights in propaganda.
Salesforce.com CEO Marc Benioff is an egomaniacal buffoon who laughs at the plight of underpaid Walmart workers and flies the prime minister of Haiti up to San Francisco so he can thank Benioff in person, in front of 15,000 people, for being such an amazing human being. And like all buffoons, Benioff has no idea how much of a buffoon he truly is.
Away from the beanbag-seated crowds and cloud software kiosks at Dreamforce 2013, Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer and Salesforce CEO Mark Benioff sat down on a stage to praise on another. But the panegyric swap was rudely interrupted by labor protestors, calling out Mayer for her board position at Walmart. They responded in the most Silicon Valley way possible.
