Back to blogging
OK, so one of my new year's resolutions has been to finally keep this blog going. I thought I would start with a quick status blog and explain what I have in store for the near future.

The primary reason for this is I just moved to the OCS core team and I am ramping up on the infrastructure and product over there. Lately I have been reading a lot of specs, which hasn...

My life plan
Recently I have formulated what I call a 'life plan' that basically specifies what I want to accomplish in my life and how I intend to get there. Currently there are four main areas that I intend to focus. 1) My work at Microsoft. Obviously I have career aspirations here and I need a plan to achieve...

A new lens!
