Well, the cat is out of the bag. Michael Gartenberg from Jupiter Research is joining the evangelism team at Microsoft. Michael will be joining our team as an enthusiast evangelist. From Michael's announcement post yesterday:
What is an enthusiast evangelist? Our job is to find, engage and work with enthusiasts and other influencers and show them all the cool stuff that Microsoft is doing. In short, it’s our job to act as the bridge between Microsoft and end users.
Michael is well known in the blogosphere and industry press circles. I'm looking forward to meeting Michael and working with him soon. (Maybe he can teach me a thing or two about how this blogging thing works... as I'm still learning.) Welcome aboard!
[Updated 3-12-2007]: Looks like Michael decided to go back to being an analyst. Too bad for Microsoft. I still look forward to meeting Michael at some point.
