1991 was a big year for me.
I got married.
I bought a house.
My first child was born
I joined Microsoft on May 20, 1991
Today marks my 18th year anniversary at Microsoft.
They say 18 is the age of maturity, and Wikipedia lists some great age 18 milestones! I wont list them here, but you can guess where I’m going….
One fact about 18 which I really love is that 18, aside from 0, is the only number that equals twice the sum of its decimal digits – cool huh?.
Today I am following in the Microsoft tradition which dictates that I bring in a pound of M&Ms for each year that I’ve been an employee.
Yes, that’s a lot of M&M’s!! (over 8KG for you metric folks)
As I have done for the past few years (17, 16. 15, 14, 13), time to reflect a bit on my time at Microsoft. Yes, I still love the job.
The resume hasn’t changed that much over the year, apart from a title adjustment
I’m leading a team of great guys and we are focusing on helping the DPE folks around the world, who do the real work, day in and day out. I do miss the customer interaction bit, getting up on stage, doing the press interviews.
My guys are on twitter (as am I, @frankarr) so why not follow the exploits of @orco & @jldavid too !!
Ok, time to share those M&Ms
