Today I’m going to be at an offsite with a bunch of other managers from the VS team. When I was younger, I always looked forward to offsites as an opportunity to learn something, to play around, and (really) to take a day off from work. As I’ve gotten older, offsites have taken on a different meaning – a slightly different set of four walls, a slightly different set of Microsoft employees, and the opportunity to demonstrate my poor penmanship on those large paper easels. On the upside, at least may be bacon.
