Working at Microsoft has been GREAT. I’ve been here for 8 years.

But it’s hard too.

For a decade before I joined Microsoft, I ran the show. Here, I’m just a peon, and not being on campus often means not being “inside” which creates several barriers to success. 

There is the politics, the constant org changes, the haters spanning your blog, the travel. (Not to mention the cut in pay :)

Today I had a bit of a cool thing happen.

Last night I installed Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2 – which I’m VERY excited about.

Today I fired it up to start working on some new videos and the top item in the “Latest News” page was an item about my latest video. 

Trivial, i know, but my spirits valued thy boost !!
