Scoble just let it slip in the comments to his post on 

I'm returning to work on the Internet Explorer team. A team that I used to work on a few years ago and I'm very excited to be returning to the team where we clearly have much work to do. I've really enjoyed working on Longhorn as a technical evangelist and remain very very excited by the capabilities that Avalon and Longhorn will bring but the time was right for me to return to work on a product team.

What am I going to be doing? I'll be on the Program Management team focusing on helping customers and bringing customer feedback to the team. As I've just returned from vacation and getting married there are details to be sorted out, so I'll post more later.

What are we planning for Internet Explorer? Tony Chor the Group Program Manager on the team put it well on Channel 9. At this stage there isn't much more to add other than to reiterate the point that the Internet Explorer team does exist and does care. In my new job role I'm very interested in hearing about what you the customers would like to see. I know that there are many requests already out there around CSS support, transparent PNG support etc. and we do read every single one of them. I can say though that somewhat vague requests for “better standards support” are not as useful as a specific example of what you'd like to see changed and specifically why it would improve things. Obviously I cannot guarrantee that every request will be implemented but please let me know what you'd like to see. Probably the best place to do that is on the Internet Explorer Wiki on Channel 9 or post here.

I can't promise a response to every question or request but I will read and consider everything.
