One of the great things about working for Microsoft is the variety of things that someone can work on. Back in November 2004, I made a switch from one team to another within Microsoft. This past month, I made another change back to an area which got me first involved into computers. I've joined the XNA Communities team which is responsible for a new feature which will be available in the upcoming new Xbox experience on November 19th. We'll be giving users the ability to make their own games and publish them in a special channel for user generated content. This will give Xbox users a whole new source of games.
For more details on XNA and what will be available for customers, Major Nelson sat down with our Community Manager, Kathleen Sanders for a chat: http://majornelson.com/archive/2008/10/17/new-xbox-experience-community-games.aspx
