It’s Been a Long Time…..

I’ve been away for a while, but for good reason.  Microsoft’s fiscal year ends in June every year (this year we got a few extra days, but I digress) so I’ve spent the last month tying up loose ends and helping to close business.  So what did I really accomplish?

I Want One of These

My biggest complaint about Microsoft is the fact that we don’t spend enough time talking about the really cool and innovative products we develop.  Not that Windows and Office aren’t innovative.  Hell we changed the world with just those two products alone.  And don’t get me started talking about SharePoint and Office Communications Server.  Even…
