Not surprisingly, I’m the security contact for my small part of the Windows organization (it’s called the Devices&Media group, which is within the WEX division). As such, I’m responsible for providing security guidance and reviewing the threat models for our group (I’ve done a lot of them over the past few months :)).
Earlier this morning, one of the PMs for one of the teams in D&M stopped by my office with a thank you gift for the work I’ve done with his team. He had noticed my 20 year old office tool kit and his team decided to replace it with something newer (and way cooler):
I sent them a private thank-you, but I’ve got to say publicly that I’m really touched – it was extraordinarily nice of them and I truly appreciate it.
PS: before anyone asks, the photo was taken with the toolkit resting on a test laptop (it’s an old Toshiba M5). In the background, you can see the Blibbet Hat I had made about 20 years ago at a local fair.
