Happy New Year!
As we head into 2006, I thought I would make some blog related resolutions to go along with my promise to myself to ditch the 10 pounds from Christmas feasts I seem to have added to my waistline.
1. More regular posting -> I certainly go too long between posts too often.
2. A little less “look at this” posting and a little more “editorial” posting
3. More insight into the inner workings at Microsoft.
4. Better cross-posting with other bloggers I respect
Only time will tell if I can improve on the overall quality, relevance and readership of this blog! (Wish me luck and let me know if it is not working)
I am looking for a business development person to join my team to help drive our mission in Canada. If you know of any good candidates, send them my way!!!

So – we have announced an all-new conference focused on “the second decade of the web”. Everything you would want to know about IE7, ASP.NET, AJAX, Vista, Media Center, RSS, Presentation Foundation, our new design tools, etc. Looks like it is going to be very cool and it is nice to have another event to compliment PDC (which doesn’t happen every year).
It’s in Vegas – March 20–22 at the Venetian (nice)
