As some of you may know, in addition to working for Microsoft I also run the New York City chapter of the International Association of Software Architects (IASA). IASA is a vendor-neutral association of/for/by IT architects all over the world. The New York IASA chapter is one of the most successful IASA chapters in the United States.
