About Bit-cycling

My name is Sean Lyndersay. I'm a lead program manager on the PowerPoint team. In past lives, I have been on the Live Search (now Bing) team (briefly), Internet Explorer team, the Windows Networking team, the SQL Server team (briefly) and the Exchange team.

This blog is place for me to blog on semi-work-related topics that interest me and may interest others, who care about things like Microsoft, UI development, software development in general, and other such things (there are also several posts about promising to post more :).

If either of my two readers have something they'd like me to post about, they should drop me a line.
