Communicativity and openness

As you've probably noticed from my blog, I'm a little less open and communicative than I was in the past, and I've decided to write about it, since I've been deliberately not answering some of the questions I've gotten in comments.

It's mostly because I'm no longer in a position where it's my job to decide what's okay and what isn't, so I'm trying to tread lightly. It's also true that the Windows division isn't quite as open as devdiv was - or perhaps I just feel that way because I'm not as plugged in as I was.

I've recently gotten some clarification on what I can and cannot talk about, which will allow me to talk about things a bit more, so look for some posts coming up - but perhaps not until after the holidays. And when we reach a point where I *can* talk more, be assured that I will.

    Your comments never came off to me as rulings or pronouncements from on high. Although you’re not in the same position I value your opinions on coding style and the thinking behind C# design. Please keep them coming.

    We’ve missed your comments, so thanks for the explaination. We’ll look forward to some more posts in the future.

    As Doug says, your comments on the past – why C# is the way it is – are always interesting, even if you can’t comment so much on the future any more.
