After five years of living in the Emerald City of Seattle, I have decided to trade in the rain for the California sun. Those who know me knew it was inevitable. In my book, sun and sand beats clouds and woods most any day. That said, my time here was enjoyable and the people made it a very pleasant stay. But on I must go...
Tomorrow I will drive top-down as soon as the northwest coastal clouds permit, until I reach the south end of the Los Angeles metropolis. My new base will be Irvine in Orange County. My mission will be to evangelize the Information Worker platform to Microsoft partners. Next week, my orange badge will turn blue, another inevitable prediction for those keeping score, with a new challenge on spreading ‘the love’ of Office all over southern California.
I will always be an Office Zealot at heart, but officially our numbers must drop by one. I want to pay my most humble respect and gratitude to the wonderful and talented Mr. Chris Kunicki. He has endured my tenure while making OZ an interesting, exciting and worthwhile venture. I will forever be indebted and inspired by him and ever so thankful for his friendship.
For those of you who ‘tuned’ in, thank you as well. Your support, questions, comments, feedback, etc. has been amazing… keep pushing. I hope to carry some reincarnation of OZ-like enthusiasm for the IW client under my new MSFT banner so please stay tuned while I sort it all out.
