One of my great friends and colleagues at Microsoft - Dave Lemphers - works in our evangelist team. He was on my back for months and months (not literally of course :-) ) about why I should start a blog... that I had great info to share to the BTS community..... and so on. Pretty much, he made me feel like If didn't do it that I did not deserve being in his humble presence (O.K. I exaggerated a little). So i decided to give it a try and have never really turned back! It's been a blast.
