Starting today I no longer work at Microsoft. As many of you know, I started working at Microsoft after an illustrious post high school career as landscape architect. 😉 I loved the landscape work, but Microsoft paid better. I was just barely 18 and Microsoft was just realizing that the internet (lower case then) was amazingly NOT going to be replaced by the Windows 95 Microsoft Network. Much has changed since then. While I started my 4 year degree and continued working on it part time, it’s now time for me to go back to school full time and finish. After that, I hope to get an MBA.
I’ve had a remarkable time at Microsoft and in MacBU in particular. I’ve learned so much. I’ve been so thankful to interact with such a high concentration of good individuals. I feel very blessed. My last day was December 31st, 2007.
So that’s the news. I realize that many of you subscribe to this blog because of my connection with Microsoft and especially MacBU. Since I’m no longer working there, feel free to unsubscribe. During the Holiday’s I’ve been mentally processing my MacBU experience and I’ll be posting much of what I have learned and observed. If that interests you, hang on, there might still be some content here for you! As you may have noticed I’ve not really posted anything since September when I returned to work after paternity leave! These last 3 months finishing up Office 2008 were quite the grind, not a death march, but certainly not pretty. I’m glad for it to end. With a bit more time, I think you’ll see some more frequent posts here.

Happy New Year to all and wish me luck!
