Well, it is time for a change for me.

Well, it is time for a change for me. On January 16th I’ll be starting my new job (moving outside of MSDN and TechNet team but still within Microsoft and still at Redmond) within the Data Programmability (DP) team (within SQL / WinFS).

I’ll blog more on this later, but in case you’re asking yourself what Data Programmability ‘means’ and ‘is’…best answer to point you to right now is the MSDN Data site which pretty much covers the range of technologies / products the team is responsible for.

In the meantime you can check out a Beta version of the MSDN home page (hey – it’s a ‘beta’…very Web 2.0 ;-). The new home page demonstrates *some* of the globalization/personalization/profile features that will end up on the final MSDN and TechNet sites in the very near future. More info here.

I’m on a holiday break now till the new year and so heading to London for some friends and family catch-ups. Let me know if you’re up for meeting.

    Conrats Alex. Wouldn’t be a a bit surprised if some of the intellectual capital you showcase and networking you do via your blog helped you out.

    Hi Alex

    When are you over? I am a consultant working in MSN UK as one of their strategy team. I am also working on a personal project called iRiSS which is an OPML exchange. I launch it in the new year. Lots of stuff to do with Attention MetaData and a few things you have not been talking about such as a Meta Co-Browser and something to view OPML in called the LifeBar.

    Anyway if you are over and fancy a beer and chat let me know.
