It's been a long summer of big Microsoft internal events to close the last fiscal year and bring in the new one. Given that in Europe and many other parts of the world business slows down due to holidays I lost momentum myself and slacked on the writing front. Nevertheless, I've been having loads of really interesting discussions with colleagues and friends so there's loads of stuff in the pipeline to write about over the next fiscal year... that is if I can get my half conscious thoughts together!

My wife and two daughters started a small hobby jewellery business which they called "Sehmi-Precious". I blatantly stole their brand name for my tag line and was quickly reprimanded. Naughty me! So I've decided to have the new tag line: "Sehmi-Conscious Thoughts".
