It’s live…

They made a bunch of updates to the “Meet people who work at Microsoft” page, and I’m on the latest update:
I like the way mine turned out, although I did do a lot of heavy
editing as the first version they had from my interview made me sound
like a bill-worshipper because on the spur of the moment, the only
funny stories I could think of about work happened to both be bill
related (one of them was pretty stupid too, I rode up with him in an
elevator once and on one floor, a woman with a massive stuffed gorilla
got on and they started talking. Wow, what a great story, I can hear
you thinking! :-). I know we get criticized as a company a lot for
that, so I didn’t want that to be the impression that job seekers took
away from my profile as that’s not the point I wanted to make.

I love what it ended up as… it emphasizes work-life balance which is
obviously very important to me, the challenges and fun of working on a
variety of projects and the ownership you get when you do work on
something, and being empowered to make life at Microsoft better not
just for myself but for others.

    Do you think you’re blog readership is so large to have a ‘slashdot effect’? 🙂

    Hi KC,

    I wished to ask you a few questions about living in the Redmond area – from a parent’s perspective. (I am coming to MS in June). I can’t seem to dig up any email address for you. If you get this message – could you email me and I can then reply. Visit and follow the link to email me. Hope you get this message!
