I was wondering if you feel like you know Microsoft and how much of that matters?  I hope this is not a strange  question, but I think it does has some value so I decided to ask it.  I don't know that it matters a lot about what technology you are using, but do you feel there is a Microsoft employee/expert behind that technology.  If there is an employee, do you try to find articles and resources by that expert or are you unable to find a Microsoft face behind that product?

Microsoft France has an interesting site that contains biographies:
http://www.microsoft.com/france/education/contact/

This site seems pretty interesting.  If you find the Microsoft face important, then I would be happy to hear from you and what you would like to see.
