This month is my ten year anniversary at Microsoft. You might think that shows a remarkable lack of creativity in career terms and it did strike me that my contratulations and well done note from Bill and Steve (it was a printout) might have read "well done for staying alive and on the payroll for 10 years" as it was about as generic in the extreme. I received this wonderful glass thingamebob which my boss thought was for her until she read the note and had to give it over.
So my 10 year day passed quietly by and I thought it deserved at least a blog post. I better write some things down too as I am getting old and may not remember much of the last decade come my 20 year anniversary. If I think about all the things I really remember in Microsoft, what moments stand out for me? well here is a list off the top of my head.
