    KevinButton Robby and I were hanging out at TechEd in Boston. Randomly I say, “Hey, we should put more people in buttons.” Long story short, Robby hacks away on some XAML and gets laughs at my expense during his talk. Back in Redmond, Robby shows the button to Tim . Tim thinks it would...

  • Blog Post: Reasons to submit error reports

    Punish your Microsoft developer Okay, so submitting bug reports isn't quite this gratifying, but I know from a lot of first-hand experience that these reports are amazingly helpful. We feel your pain...if not literally.
  • Blog Post: Save the Internet!

    In general, I avoid political discussion like the plague on my work blog, but since Microsoft has already taken a stand on this, I thought I’d throw my hat in. <Rant Disclaimer=”The following rant is solely my opinion and not that of my employer.”> I got a phone call last night. I could tell instantly...

    I grew up in Iowa [close to Okoboji ]. I've done my share of knocking my home state, how I'd never live there, etc. Well it turns out that Fast Company disagrees. It turns out that Des Moines, IA [the state capitol] is the best place to work in the US . I never would have guessed...until...
