The massive multiplayer online role playing game (MMORPG) World of Warcraft has made its first real contribution to society by offering a geeky management philosophy: Leeroy Jenkins.
The term apparently dates back to 2005 or earlier, but somehow escaped my attention. World of Worldcraft lets gamers team up with other player and scavenge for virtual goodies, and I'm the first to admit that I've never played it.
In the famous episode, a team of players spends minutes cooking up a plan to enter a room full of bad guys over audio an teleconference. As some boring management type is inquiring about the cost-benefit analysis, Leeroy yells his own name, rushes into the room, alerts the bad guys and gets himself and all his team mates killed.
