In one of my earliest blog posts ever, I made an observation about how Microsoft employees use the word 'so'.  So in honor of that blog post, I plan on acclimating to the machine with my own overuse of the word.

I am so thrilled to announce that I am now employed by Microsoft as a Developer Evangelist.  My geographic area of coverage includes Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and southern Nevada.  So that means I get to work with great community leaders.  It also means I get to work with awesome people inside Microsoft.  I look forward to meeting so many more people as I grow into my role.

So why this blog?  I have a blog at, and I blog at  So why another blog location?  This blog will be my new home for technical blogs.  The other blog sites will continue to function for non-technical content.  So with the exception of this post, all forthcoming blog posts will be technical in nature and likely contain much code.

So, any comments?
