Countdown to PDC2008:  17 years in the same job?  Yep, Senior Vice President of Microsoft Research, Rick Rashid has been doing the same thing since the first day he joined the firm, and he’s still loving it.  Listen to Rick talk about all of the cool innovation coming out of MSR, and he foreshadows his PDC keynote warning audience members to be thoughtful about where they sit during his speech. Hmmm.  Whatever in the world could that possibly mean?  Who cares!  Mike’s got apple pie in this, his final PDC Hard Hat Challenge.  Bonne chance!
