Thanks for everyone's comments so far! I'm surprised at how quickly this blog has taken off. A lot of people are reading, and a lot of people are showing some great interest about Software Test Engineering at Microsoft.
Another STE at Microsoft, Chris Dickens, has expressed interest in being a contributor on this blog. We're still working out the details of how our partnership will work out, but expect to be hearing the voice of another Microsoft STE here soon! (I'll keep mysteriously quiet about his credentials until he's officially ready to leap into the spotlight : )
