    Tim, a OneNote test team member, is enjoying his time in the spotlight

    • 0 Comments
    No idea how I missed this considering Tim and I are on the same team.  He was offered the chance to be the guest blogger for our team OneNote blog over at http://blogs.office.com/2014/06/03/a-look-inside-tims-onenote-office/ and it really looks like...
