At our team meeting in December, I received an unexpected surprise. I won the “Most Improved Presenter” award, based on evaluation scores for my events. That means I get the wonderful experience of traveling to Anchorage, Alaska to deliver this quarter's MSDN Event there!

So, if you were looking for me during the week of 2/2 in Fayetteville or Greensboro, you won't find me. I'll be enjoying the lovely climate of the Arctic Circle, which I beleieve is only slightly colder than the last few days in Georgia. But don't fret, the inestimable Paul Murphy will do a fantastic job in my stead.
