My name is Jensen Harris and I'm a Lead Program Manager on the Microsoft Office "user experience" team.
Our team is responsible for the overall interaction and visual design of the programs that ship in Office. Most recently, we've been working on a complete user interface redesign of Office which will ship as part of Office 2007.
In this blog, I write about my thoughts concerning the ins and outs of defining and designing the user experience of Microsoft Office. I write frequently about the future of Office but also sometimes the past. And there are times I find it irresistible to delve into general user interface issues or even software issues in general.
