Each year, Microsoft hosts an event for Microsoft Project partners and customers called the "Project Technical Briefing" (PTB). About eight years ago, a tradition started that has since been repeated at almost every PTB that has been held since.
It turns out that Ira Brown, the founder and president of Project Widgets, also performs in a musical comedy group called the Nuclear Fish. On a fateful day at a PTB many years ago, Ira decided to merge his day and night job together, and performed a humorous song about Microsoft Project that made quite a hit with the crowd.
At nearly every PTB event since then, Ira has been asked to take to the stage once again for a new musical "ribbing" of our favorite project management software package.
Project Widgets has made these songs available for your enjoyment on their web site, and there's even a video you can watch from the 2004 Project Technical Briefing. Who says you can't have a little fun with project management?
