Microsoft hiring Ninjas


I was chatting with my pal Viral today and he pointed out an employee at Microsoft who had the title "Zune Ninja" stored in Active Directory.  What a cool title I thought – I wonder if I can change my title to become "Partner Technology Ninja".  Anyway Viral emailed the guy and he explained the interesting story behind how he became a Ninja whilst working in the Xbox team under J Allard.

Anyway it seems that the title stuck and as Josh moved into the Zune team he took his rather individual title with him.
