Tonight's episode of "The Apprentice" will feature Microsoft's own Live Meeting product team, part of our Real Time Collaboration Group. As reported in the Seattle PI, Microsoft took this opportunity very seriously. Can I just say how proud I am when I hear about this kind of stuff? I'd be even prouder if the Microsoft employees involved recruited Randal and Alla right out from under The Donald's nose. Oh, hmmm, maybe that's my job.

But wait, there's more (sorry, I can't help it...I'm just feeling it). You can go to this website and get a free trial of Live Meeting, join a Live Meeting with recently relieved "Apprentice" contestants, and view past Live Meetings with former contestants. There's also a Live Meeting on December 9th, with The Donald and some of the other "Apprentice insiders" (I'd like to chat with some of those producers that have been toying with me, wouldn't you?). And there will be a Live Meeting on December 16th with The Donald and the newly hired Apprentice. You should tune in. You know you want to.

And as if that wasn't enough, my team is currently working on a project to recruit top-notch marketers to the RTC team (no contest, no board room, I promise...if there's a board room here, I don't know where it is). Here's a link to a listing of some of the open positions and you should absolutely feel free to contact me directly with your resume or bio if you would like to be considered.

I'll also be featuring a blog interview with Zig Serafin, GM in the Real Time Collaboration Group in the near future. If there are any questions you would like me to ask Zig, feel free to send them my way via comments or directly via e-mail.

I know, we are spoiling you...it's the holiday season...you deserve it! ; )
