  • Blog Post: Smartphone Development Resources

    It almost goes without saying that I'm completely addicted to my Windows Mobile-based phone. I have an Audiovox SMT 5600, which runs Windows Mobile 2003 and has support built in for the .Net Compact Framework. There's something wonderfully compelling about being able to easily write apps code for smaller...
  • Blog Post: Halo 2 Has Gone Gold!!!

    http://www.bungie.net/News/TopStory.aspx?story=GoneGoldAnnouncer&p=811577 I want to congratulate all of the flaming ninjas over at Bungie, you guys rock! Man, I can't wait until this ships! :-)
  • Blog Post: Mount St. Helens Pictures

    Apologies about the lack of blogging over the past two months. I will get back to it soon, I've just been unfortunately swamped. Anyway, the USGS has a set of really amazing photos of Mount St. Helens from the past few days. Well worth the look. They come in sizes up to 650x400 pixels and so, and look...
  • Blog Post: Review Time

    I finally just finished writing my annual performance review. I've been working on this thing for the past few days in fits and spurts, but I really needed to have it done for my meeting with my Lead Program Manager, Jason, later this morning. In other news, I spent 4 or 5 hours today logging bugs...
  • Blog Post: Slashdot

    Apparently I wasn't the only person to link to Chris Pratley's phenomenal blog entry about the history of Word today. I just discovered that Chris's blog entry appeared on the front page of Slashdot earlier today. It's shocking I didn't notice this before, seeing as how I will usually open up Slashdot...
  • Blog Post: The Microsoft Way

    From Chris Pratley : “ So, that in a nutshell is the Microsoft method. Understand the market, and the customers, and then go pedal to the metal, with release after release focused on what the customers need, incorporating their feedback.”
  • Blog Post: Burritos

    I'm sure that most of you don't care about this, especially since it has nothing to do with technology whatsoever, but I am very excited to announce that a Chipotle (!!!!!) will be opening in Seattle sometime soon. Yay! I've been missing gigantic Chipotle burritos ever since I moved to Seattle last November...
  • Blog Post: Joel Spolsky

    I don't think I've mentioned here how much I love Joel Spolsky . So, let me just make this clear: I think Joel's absolutely hilarious (not to mention quite smart). Back in the early 90s, he was a Program Manager in Excel. Since then, he founded his own company, Fog Creek Software . Here's a choice quote...
  • Blog Post: Cool development technologies

    I think most people by now have heard about the complaints being registered about how it seems like every Microsoft blogger is talking about Whidbey, Longhorn, or other future technologies. I'm certainly guilty of this at times. There's no question about that. So, with that in mind, I wanted to write...
  • Blog Post: William Gibson

    William Gibson, of Neuromancer fame, is speaking at Microsoft today (actually, in a half-hour). I'm sitting in the front row of a lecture room waiting for his talk to begin. I was quite saddened that I forgot my copy of Pattern Recognition at home today, as I would've liked to have had it signed. Nevertheless...
  • Blog Post: U of Minnesota Recruiting Wrapup

    I have been really bad about blogging in the past week because it's just been nuts for me. Unlike Scoble, blogging tends to be the first thing I cut from my daily list of activities (a double-edged sword, for sure). In any case, I imagine that I will be more faithful about it in the near future. Of course...
  • Blog Post: Seattle Area Blog Meetup

    Tonight, Wed. January 21 2004 @ 7pm. Leilani Lanes 10201 Greenwood Ave N Seattle .
  • Blog Post: U of Minnesota/IEEE Career Fair

    This is just a head's up to any students at the University of Minnesota (or other schools in the Twin Cities): the U of MN's IEEE student group is sponsoring a career fair a week from tomorrow (which would make it Monday, January 26) at the McNamara Alumni Center (the big copper building on the corner...
  • Blog Post: About Me

    About Me: I work for Microsoft. I'm a Program Manager on the Visual Studio Core team. Specifically, I work on Core IDE functionality. Which means what? Basically, I'm responsible for ensuring cross-suite user interface consistency and accessibility, among other things. Given the opportunity, I...
