Many of us in the Microsoft Worldwide Power & Utilities Group were in conversations with customers and partners at the Distributech conference last month and we noted their amazement at the work we are doing in the industry. Several asked whether we could provide them with a list of many of the articles and media coverage of our Utilities work. Of course we thought where there’s one request there may be more, so in all humility please accept the following list as a summary. - Jon C. Arnold
