And this probably explains the clock ticking sound in my head. Someone asked me how far I was into my 15 minutes. What the heck! The attention is flattering but that's not what I am here for. Describing blogging as a "calling" might be a little heavy handed, but let's just say that I'm inspired to do this by the opportunity to impact 1) peoples' lives when making a very personal decision and 2) peoples' understanding of marketing at Microsoft and just Microsoft in general. Plus it's fun. I love the fact that we can have a conversation here, trade idea and nobody cares that I am having a bad hair day!

Special thanks to Gerry and Mark! It's great to have "idea sponsors" outside of your company. I'll have to blog on that later.
