    The B-A Room

    • 4 Comments
    Seems like only yesterday that we were down at the LA Convention Center, closing up after the panel sessions, enjoying one last espresso at the embedded Starbucks, wondering one more time what the “Wondrous Guy” (the guy on the PDC banners who is staring...

    Jeremy is in the House

    • 2 Comments
    More pieces are falling into place as we begin to this baby up on the centerline of the runway. Jeremy Mazner has signed on (he’s on my team, so I pulled a Vic on him) as Content Owner, the role I played at the last PDC. Jeremy’s head is exploding as...

    A Gripping Tale

    • 4 Comments
    About 2 years ago my boss, Vic Gundotra, walked in my office and in a manner one might use to, say, borrow a spare power adapter told me that he'd volunteered me to be content owner for PDC'03. Given that the PDC has always been run out of his org, "assigned...

    This shouldn't be too hard...

    • 5 Comments
    Registration for PDC05 opened last week, and we all sighed great sighs of relief; since then it's been fun to watch the community buzz ramp up about it. To get here, a lot of people put in some pretty good hours and not a little bit of sweat: content...

    About those Resource Cards (Part I: Theory)

    • 3 Comments
    Robert has asked ( publicly , in fact) to be released from the tyranny of the PDC Resource Card. Before we do that - IF we do that - it's probably worth explaining just what we were thinking back then. It made sense at the time, I'm sure. Some background...

    Where does the time go?

    • 2 Comments
    Yes, it's been a while since my last post. I wish I could say that since then I've learned to play a musical instrument, or a new language. But no. I did find myself standing at the front door to my house looking for the cardreader. "They" say that...

    Brendan Tompkins made my day - if anyone cares - when he offered up a PDC Countdown image on his blog (best tagline I've seen in a while: "Blog First. Ask Questions Later."). Here it is: 69 days! Yikes! PS: Now, don't lets get to be thinking that...

    Just what you needed: a PDC05 Crossword Puzzle (updated)

    • 2 Comments
    I just posted a PDC05 Crossword Puzzle to the sandbox on Channel 9. Just seemed like something that had to be done. I'm sure that all of you out there won't find it much of a challenge :-) Update: 6/18: fixed a small bug. New outline and .ZIP file...

    More Longhorn

    • 0 Comments
    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...

    A feeble attempt to close a long gap in posts... with some "easy" news: In case anyone didn't know... PDC05 started yesterday with a bang :-) You can follow the blogosphere buzz at PDC Bloggers 2005, on http://pdcbloggers.net . We'll also be posting...

    When it rains it pours - open positions on the team

    This post isn't about the PDC. It's about the several open positions on my team: when we're not doing PDC'05 stuff we're evangelizing to developers about Whidbey, Longhorn, and WinFX. Jeremy Mazner is looking for an IE Evangelist , and Longhorn Evangelists...
