Olivier Ribet, Director of Microsoft Communities outlines some of the community-based work his team is working at Microsoft.com over at Mary Jo Farley's Microsoft Watch.

In my opinion, Olivier has one of the most critical roles within the Microsoft.com team.  And complex.  There sheer scale the task he has at hand is enormous but exciting.  Encouragingly, he has the visibility and backing of Steve Ballmer and Eric Rudder.

In a Microsoft.com summit in Singapore earlier this year, Olivier talked through the details of the plan ahead: there is plenty of cool stuff his team is driving - I was impressed and his passion was contagious.

I was also rather impressed by Olivier's ability to eat whole fish eyes (I can't remember the name of the restaurant, but the food was really delicious). He didn't blink...I think I did though.
