community forums (+btw, eat my blog, pls k thx)


We just published an update to our community page–it now points to a bunch of forums y’all suggested as good place to talk about and learn about certification from your peers. This is meant to be a good place for new-to-cert people to start. Be nice to them. If you have other suggestions, let us know.


Also added links to a few other MSL blogs – that of our new MCP Program Manager, George P – he is great! and that of Juliana on the MIcrosoft Press team. Check them out and say hello, I bet they’d love to hear from you…


Speaking of community, I just went to the bloggers luncheon (“Eat My Blog”) at TechEd Australia, run by the v. charismatic and slightly crazy Frank, instigator of TechED LOL cats and general whistle blower (literally… he was blowing a whistle when he wanted one of his panel to stop talking…). He is moving his MSFT gig from Australia to Redmond, to my building (18), no less, so that is fun to meet him here. My favorite thing at the luncheon was when one of the MIcrosoft panelists said the value of blogging was getting feedback from the community, which “… allows us to cut back on the number of stupid decisions we make.” I thought that was funny.


In other TechEd news, a gentleman at the booth today asked if he could borrow a skirt from me for tomorrow. Is this standard Australia behavior, like being friendly, eating lamb, and ending everything in “o” or “ies”?

    no Trika – the skirt isn’t standard Ozzie behaviour – only when a dare is involved.

  2. Not even an honorable mention. My blog sucks.

    I know Pete, just teasing.

    MDA, your blog ROCKS but we wanted to feature forums… you might note that your blog is in teh "people are talking about" section…

    slightly crazy ?

    are you a psycharist? what qualifications do you have to make such a diagnosis?

  5. Oh… All is forgiven then! 🙂

    Hey if you run across a bloke there name Curtis Chappell, kindly tell him I said hello. He is a great friend of mine.

  6. Trika.. in case you have not seen the evidence of Pete in the skirt.. I have now put it up into my blog..

    (BTW.. remember – you will need more than the raincoat and a hat in Queenstown)
