Today is the anniversary of when I started my career at Microsoft - 16 years!
Here's some ways to represent 16 (thanks to Wikipedia)
As I say each 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.
Let's look back again, at what I've done
Now I have a large team of evangelists, which includes some experienced folks, as well as some new guys who are getting up to speed very nicely. I find a large part of my role these days is explaining what we do to the rest of Microsoft. Seems some folks don't quite understand what it is we do.
The future continues to be bright. I still love the job, I still believe in what we're doing, and I continue to get inspired by the impact we have. Just look at the buzz from the Popfly news - that just rocks!
Time to go make some mashups and celebrate
happy sweet 16th, never been kissed ;-P
Happy anniversary. Glad to hear that after so many years you're still getting so much job satisfaction. That's a long time in this day and age...
Darnit, Nick, I wanted to say that *pouts*.
That's what's wrong with the 'net today lads; you see something, decide to write about it, and some smartypants gets in before you. Top of my reasons why I hate Wikipedia. :P
Thanks for the pointer to PopFly - I've been looking for a community like that to write about. Unless someone does it before me.... grrrr. heh.
Congratulations, I bet DPE is the best job of them all!
thank all for the well wishes.
this is a fun job
One more year and you're on par with Jim Allchin :D
Should be a walk in the park after 16 years. Congrats Frank.
I know you've done a superb job because you've done so much for me in the last 12 months. I can't owe you enough.
Congradulations...so, you should be able to retire a billionaire soon, right?
Wishing you many more happy years of servitude.
Nice one! Congrats!
I've been working in ICT within the ATO for 2 years... still a long way for me to go yet!!!
Congratulations Frank...16 years!! for most that's a lifetime..
do you even remember what you did before MSFT?
1991 was a big year for me. I got married. I bought a house. My first child was born AND I joined Microsoft
