I am new to Microsoft. I joined as a Release Manager in the Connected Systems Division on September 19th 2005. Prior to that I ran my own software ISV named Sapago. I am also the former CTO of software ISV Ecometry Corporation and corporate CIO. In July of this year I won "Best in Show" Microsoft's Worldwide Partner Conference and also received a call from a recruiter at Microsoft who said the company wanted to talk about me joining Microsoft.


I have been blogging for some time. My web site can be found at MichaelZammuto.com and my legacy blog can be found at  MichaelZammuto.com/blog.


The goals of the blog remain the same even if the location changes. I use the site & blog to connect with former friends and coworkers. Recently, a guy who was my best friend when I was 10-12 years of age found my blog and web site through a search engine and we have used it to reconnect. What a great example the value of the technology. I also use the site and blog to share my thoughts on software and technology and things of professional interest. I also hope to be able to provide some useful information for those considering a career with Microsoft and for those adjusting to life as a Microsoftie.
