My Sweet 16th : 16 Sweet years at Microsoft
Today is the anniversary of when I started my career at Microsoft - 16 years!
Here's some ways to represent 16 (thanks to Wikipedia)
As I say each year, I've been really lucky, as I have done lots of different things, been exposed to different parts of the business, and seen it from different parts of the world. I have been very fortunate to work with some amazing people within Microsoft, as well as some outstanding organisations & people outside of Microsoft.
Let's look back again, at what I've done
Now I have a large team of evangelists, which includes some experienced folks, as well as some new guys who are getting up to speed very nicely. I find a large part of my role these days is explaining what we do to the rest of Microsoft. Seems some folks don't quite understand what it is we do.
The future continues to be bright. I still love the job, I still believe in what we're doing, and I continue to get inspired by the impact we have. Just look at the buzz from the Popfly news - that just rocks!
Time to go make some mashups and celebrate

AFL Round 8 2007 : Results
Not a good round for the Saints. The played the worst game I have seen in years.
Plus, I made a bet with Molly and I lost. I will be singing the Hawthorn theme song for his next podcast.
My tipping suffered, but even if the Saints had won, I wouldn't have scored a perfect round - bloody bulldogs. And to cap it all off, all the home teams won!! That's what I used last week for my tipping! FFS
The news about the game isn't good, but then again, the game wasn't good either. The crowd was booing during the game.
The ladder situation isn't pretty either - the Saints are in the same position as they were this time last year
