Good Morning. It's 2008 and I have a new job.
2007 I've posted some 30 entries on my blog. That's what some of the "Whoa, listen to me, I am so awesome!" blogging crowd of today typically does in a day or two. 2008 promises to be so interesting that it would be a shame not to be blogging, and hence I do. There'll be lots of things going on in tech and in the world.
Over the past year I've been very deeply involved in the still rather stealthy project 'Oslo' about which we'll talk about in MUCH more detail throughout this year than we have at the recent conferences. When you are in a project with tight disclosure constraints there's really nothing of any substance to talk or blog about. Hence I didn't.
However, since Wednesday I have a new job. I'm now getting my hands dirty by writing code for our Internet Service Bus infrastructure that's currently code-named 'BizTalk Services'. Here, the rules of the game are very different. We're actually building most of the stuff out in the open and are inviting people to play with it. That's really more in the spirit of how I've been working with the community in the past and therefore I'm looking forward to the fun that's to be had in this new team.
Beware; since I gather that I've lost about 95% of my readership of my main at http://vasters.com/clemensv blog due to my inactivity I will use the opportunity to adjust the agenda and make it a "everything that I find interesting" place. Expect political opinion. My MSDN blog at http://blogs.msdn.com/clemensv will get mirrored copies of the tech topics as I've done that since I work here at MSFT. If you just care about the tech stuff read the MSDN mirror.
