Goodbye Microsoft, Hello World


After 20 years in the military and now 20 years at Microsoft, I am considering how to spend the next 20 years. It’s been fun, exciting, and a growing experience here at Microsoft. My last day is Friday 7 October 2011. The company, people, and product groups have treated me very well. Ciao.

    Congratulations. Enjoy life on the outside. There's a lot of exciting things happening in the world. Buy an IPAD, get a GMail account, and take a new look at Linux.

    Good luck on the next chapter! I've enjoyed the blog.

    p.s. @Allen That was really lame.

    20 years, that's a long time, I haven't even reached my first 20 years :).

    Have a great next 20 years and I'm sure you'll find something challenging and new to do!

    Imagine there are just a samll group of six CRM MVPs at the summit in Redmond. Product groups are pretty busy and yet someone appreciates that these folks have come from far away to be there.

    Jim Glass gets things going and promotes the group.  In five years, there are over 50 CRM MVPs.  Dealing with a technology that is extremly complex and interacts with all the major offerings of the Microsoft Stack.

    WOW!~!!!!!!!!!!

    Jim, what ever you do after this, remember.  You climbed "Everest".

    @Brent There's a lot of exciting things going on. Leaving Microsoft offers many new opportunities like this guy who recently left Microsoft too – http://www.misfitgeek.com/…/whats-wrong-with-microsoft
