The Gates pie attack was an inside job, claims Belgian

The man who confessed to organising last week's pie attack on Microsoft CEO Bill Gates now says he relied on a Microsoft employee to pull off the job. In an online interview with the Netly News, a Belgian by the name of Noel Godin said someone on the staff of Microsoft's Belgium office contacted him with the idea about throwing a pie at Gates. The Microsoft employee gave Godin information about Gates' itinerary that enabled Godin and a group of pie throwers to surprise Gates when he got out of a car, despite a police escort. According to Godin, the Microsoft employee said it would be good way to teach Gates a lesson and 'bring him back to reality.'

The man who confessed to organising last week's pie attack on Microsoft Corp. CEO Bill Gates now says he relied on a Microsoft employee to pull off the job.

In an online interview with the Netly News, a Belgian by the name of Noel Godin said someone on the staff of Microsoft's Belgium office contacted him with the idea about throwing a pie at Gates.

The Microsoft employee gave Godin information about Gates' itinerary that enabled Godin and a group of pie throwers to surprise Gates when he got out of a car, despite a police escort. According to Godin, the Microsoft employee said it would be good way to teach Gates a lesson and "bring him back to reality."

While Gates has laughed off the pieing, some high-tech CEOs last week said they didn't see the humor in the attack. They pointed out that CEOs, especially overseas, have been the recent target of kidnappings and assassinations.
