November brought a lot of change to my life: After 5 years in the Silverlight team (and a short stint dealing with cloud hosting that you will hear about in early 2011)  I joined the Office engineering team, helping the team to deliver some great experiences in the next release of Office. Also, in November, I became a father for the 3rd time with a little girl that joined her bigger brother and even bigger sister. I am excited about these changes because it will allow me to experience new things, meet new people (literally in the case of my new daughter) and provide an opportunity for me to make a positive impact on people's lives and on our world (isn't that why we are all here?).  You can expect me to switch gears also with my writing to focus on things that I encounter. I have not forgot my roots with developers, and I will try to continue to be of value to my readers. I promise.

Barak.
