I am extremely excited that Chris Bowen is officially on board at Microsoft and that I have the pleasure to be working with him on a day to day basis. Chris will be taking over for Thom Robbins as the Developer Evangelist covering the Northeast. Thom has relocated to Redmond and is now the Director of the .Net Framework.

Chris and I are working on a plan to escape the confines of our cubes and travel to the many exotic cities of the northeast such as Portland, Springfield, Burlington, Farmington and Rochester.

So stay tuned for further announcements because in 2007 Bob and Chris are coming to a town near you.
