SaaS – meet the little guy and the middle man

Working for one of the biggest software companies in the world I have to say is always quite interesting.  We have resources on top of resources to get things done.  But I can recall about 16 years ago when I was one of the little guys.  I wrote a piece of software that extracted time…

Doh! ARCast(at)microsoft(dot)com wasn’t working

The youngest developer I’ve ever met

Arfa Karim Randhawa is one of the most mature 11 year old girls you are ever going to meet. And not only that, she is the youngest Microsoft Certified Professional – a title that allowed her to meet Bill Gates and President Musaraf at just 10 years old.  I met her at Tech-Ed Barcelona and…

What do you think about ARCast?

Over the past 2 years I’ve received many wonderful email messages from listeners.  Of course many times I’ve badly mispronounced the names as people have written to me so this year I decided to try something new.  When I’m out traveling around I’m going to take every opportunity to hear from you in your own…
