Scott Hanselman Joins Microsoft

I may be a few days behind on this one. This past Saturday, Scott Hanselman reported on his blog that he has accepted a position on ScottGu’s team in Microsoft’s Developer Division. Personally I think this is great for us all. Scott has always been an honest rival and critic of our, and we need talented and insightful people like him – of course, he did imply that I am evil…

I’ve been an advocate for some things Microsoft for years, while other things, not so much. That’s why I’m going to work for the DevDiv (Developer Division) and not Marketing. I might be a fanboy, but I’m not evil.

OK…I’ll let that one slide (I work in Developer Marketing). I actually expect that Scott and I will likely cross paths quite a bit, since he will be out and about talking about .NET and Visual Studio, and I will be out and about talking about Visual Studio Team System.
