I’ve been assimilated.
Ever since I built my first PC at age 11 (a scant 9 or so years ago) my family and friends have joked with me, “Since you’re going to work for Microsoft someday, remember to tell them…”
Naturally, I forgot all but the most common one, which was something along the lines of “stop sucking.”
Oddly enough, no one seems as surprised as I am. It’s not so much that I’m surprised at the notion of me working for Microsoft… that seems natural enough given my interests. What I still can’t believe is that it’s happening now.
So yeah, I’m going to work for Microsoft/MSN. And I couldn’t be more excited!! I relish the opportunity to do something I love and improve the experiences of millions of users and work at such an amazing place with amazing people. They’re even going to pay me to do it!
I’ll be filling an S/DET role at MSN. Two points if you can guess what I’ll be working on 😉
