OK, you know I'm not much of a "rah! rah!" person, but you may have seen some of the work being done by our MapPoint Team on something they are calling Virtual Earth; which I think is totally cool. You can read more about it here at Chandu Thota's blog (Chandu is part of the development team).
Reason why I am thinking about this today is that I spoke with my buddy, Suzanne, who is the marketing recruiter for the MapPoint team and they have a bunch of marketing openings, which I thought looked really interesting (and well written job descriptions...kudos to that team). And I told her that those types of positions are definitely worthy of a blog post. If you check them out and have an interest in being considered, feel free to send me your resume directly (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I'll get them over to Suzanne!
