Day 1 – The Trip to Amsterdam

The morning after watching a really exciting, albeit frustrating nil-nil result, Sounders FC MLS playoff match at Qwest Field, I boarded a Northwest Airlines flight bound for Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport. This is the first of many stages of travel I’ll embark on over the next two weeks.   And, instead of using the “written word” to…

Just When You Thought It Was Safe To Switch On Your Internet…

What a long post title to basically share a link to a recent video I recorded with Microsoft U.K.’s very own Eileen Brown (leading IT Pro evangelist, and social media expert) about our recent unveiling of Exchange 2010: This video was shot just minutes after spending nearly seven hours presenting and facilitating the Exchange sessions,…

Now Available on Twitter…Watch Out Web 2.0!

Well…in keeping with the spirit of my long blogosphere absences, I’m back (once again) to let you know that I’m now rightsizing my blogging to micro-blog levels.  That’s right, I’ve gone off and started Twitting. Or, is it Tweeting.  Ugh. Nevertheless, I welcome you to follow not just my random acts of blogging on this…

Hey, our Microsoft Unified Communications blog is on fire as of late.  After a longer hiatus than I took with this blog, the UC team (of which I’m a member of) is blogging like gangbusters. Check it out: Unified Communications Group Team Blog — hama

Okay, Time for Our Take

Not that I want to turn a TechNet blog into a battleground Lotus vs. Exchange tit-for-tat, but in furtherance to my posting on Friday (re: Notes momentum meets Gartner reality) here’s a link to a good Q&A with David Scult on the very subject of Exchange Mo’: Making Sense of the Messaging and Collaboration Market…

Setting the Record Straight(er)

Lot’s of great  buzz around the messaging space with the run up to IBM’s Lotusphere.  Lotusphere is kicking off on Sunday. Here’s a neat  Computerworld article about where the PR "rubber" meets the Gartner analyst "road": "Au contraire: Exchange’s lead over Notes actually ‘getting bigger and bigger,’ says Gartner" "While IBM argued today that its…

The Audacity of Mobile E-mail

As both an ol’ security guy, and now a nearly seasoned e-mail server guy (okay, it’s been one calendar year since I moved over to the Exchange team), I really dig this whole discussion around the future of President-elect Obama’s BlackBerry. He is, much like many CrackMobileE-mailers (like myself with my growing collection of WinMo…

blog:reloaded

Can you believe that I have not tended to my blog for nearly 8 months?  Wait. Don’t answer that! Why? Well, it is pretty easy to tell that by noticing that my last post was in March. Moving on. As I mentioned back in…er..January, I’ve been over in the Exchange Product Management team for the…

Happy New Job…er…Year!

What? Yes, the rumors* you heard are true. I’ve decided to usher in the year 2008, by leaving the group working on a major product named after this new year (i.e. Windows Server 2008) and join the Unified Communications team! Specifically, I am now a Senior (non-AARP member) Technical Product Manager focused on Exchange Server….
