A Face Made For Email, Part Two

One year ago this week I was the

Channel Nine guinea pig -- I'm still not sure why, but for some reason The Scobelizer and his cohort chose me to be the first guy interviewed for their project. (Probably because I'm mostly harmless.)

Channel Nine has succeeded tremendously, and I'm very pleased to have been a part of it at its birth. Recently Charles and Robert tracked me down and cornered me in a room with a really big XBOX screen to talk about Visual Studio Tools For Office and how we use .NET code access security.

They are looking at hiring more staff, and if they do, they’ll consider this one.

  4. Neat, thanks. I went through a big chunk of the Channel 9 archives last weekend and probably half I would have taken an audio only option.

  5. Yes, it has happened again . This time, our fabulous C# Community Program Manager Charlie Calvert was
