The title is a shameless attempt to draw attention to another open position on the team: Longhorn ISV "Ascend" Evangelist. The full job description is here. The simplest description of this role is that you'd focus on getting ISVs to adopt the latest features of Longhorn and WinFX. "Ascend" is the name of our evangelism program that focuses on collaboration with the field to identify and engage with the top 300 or so ISVs in the world, showing them the coolness that is the new platform. The world is your oyster (does that expression translate well?) when it comes to the range of kinds of ISVs you'd work with.

The person in this role would work with the other technical evangelists on the team, such as Karsten, Tim, Jeremy, Mike Swanson, and Jeff :-). And Scoble, who might want to shoot some video on you and what you do. And of course, if you start soon enough, you'll get to work on PDC05...
