One of the things we have been doing over the last few years is reaching out to folks from different technical communities and listening to what they have to say.
Just recently, we hosted a number of folks in Redmond at an event we called the Microsoft Technology Summit.
There were some Aussies in amongst these, and they have blogged about their experience
Michael Wise : Microsoft Technology Summit 2007 - MTS07
Pia Waugh : Microsoft and Open Source - the inside story
I will leave it to their comments to judge whether we have been successful.
