My name is David and I'll be your host on this blog.

I work on the Microsoft Expression product-line specifically Microsoft Expression Media, an application for managing digital assets. What are digital assets? Think photos, videos, music and documents and other rich media. Expression Media grew from iView Media Pro, which Microsoft acquired.

The Expression Media team is a close knit bunch of people, some of whom came from iView, some of whom have been with Microsoft for a while and others (like me) who have been in the software industry for a while. What unites us is a passion for building solutions for creative professionals. All of us have some kind of interest in the creative arts. Some of us are keen photographers, others are into video and music.

My motivation for starting this blog is to communicate Useful Stuff to people who have an interest in what we're doing. I'm not going to claim uniqueness since a lot (most?) of the information will already be out there, but if I've made it just a little easier to find then I've achieved something.

So if that's the point of this blog, what is this blog not about?

So sit back, relax, enjoy and don't forget to let me know what you want to hear about!
