My first post for a very long time, as I have been recovering from surgery.
Today is the anniversary of when I started my career at Microsoft - 14 years!
As I said last year, 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.
Microsoft Canberra, working as a Systems Engineer
Microsoft Corp, @ Executive Briefing Center
Microsoft Corp, in the Advanced Technology Group, working on Interactive TV
Microsoft Australia, MSN Technical Director
Microsoft Region, Digital Media dude
Microsoft Australia, Developer & Platform Evangelism

Today I headed down to CeBIT at Darling Harbour. Last year I worked on the Microsoft stand, but this year I just went down as a normal attendee and got a chance to walk around the show.
It was nice to get out of the house and go on a bit of an adventure after having been at home for a number of weeks following my surgery.
At the show I bumped into lots of familiar faces who wanted to know how I my recovery was progressing. I am very fortunate that I have been able to lots of fantastic folks during my career and at events like this it is lovely to see lots of these folks again. I even got a few bargains, including a nice 200GB external drive for $230. That will come in handy to store my digital media.
I spent almost 4 hours out at CeBIT and I barely had time to see everything there - it is such a huge event. Thank goodness for the video highlights on the website.
