I'm actually now starting with a new role inside Microsoft, working as an Architect Evangelist (AE) for the EMEA (Europe, Middle-East and Africa) Headquarter of Microsoft. I'm working there for Arvindra Sehmi's team, my AE colleagues are Beat Schwegler and Kevin Sangwell.

From a content perspective I'll concentrate on important aspects of our Web initiatives, a special focus will be on SaaS (Software as a Service). I'll talk about that topic on the next TechEd in Barcelona early in November this year, so I hope to see you there sitting in my talk:-) Otherwise I'll be on several tours and events in this fiscal year throughout our geography, so maybe you'll join my colleagues and me there and have discussions about hot architectural topics.
