    13 Years at Microsoft

    • 21 Comments

    I've just celebrated my 13 year anniversary at Microsoft. It's been a fun journey.

    I've been really lucky, as I have done lots of different things, been exposed to different parts of the business, and seen it from different parts of the world. I have been very fortunate to work with some amazing people within Microsoft, as well as some outstanding organisations & people outside of Microsoft.

    Quicky chronology:

    May 1991 Sep 1993 Microsoft Canberra, working as a Systems Engineer
    Sep 1993 Aug 1994 Microsoft Corp, @ Executive Briefing Center
    Aug 1994 Oct 1995 Microsoft Corp, in the Advanced Technology Group, working on Interactive TV
    Nov 1995 May 1997 Microsoft Australia, MSN Technical Director
    Jun 1997 Jun 1999 ninemsn CTO
    Jun 1999 May 2001 Microsoft Region, Digital Media dude
    May 2001 now Microsoft Australia, Developer Evangelism

     I have read that Visual Blogger is out, so I had to go and download it.

    I'm giving it a test run.

    The nicest feature (for me) is support of the Blogging Plug-in for Windows Media Player 9 Series
