My new role... Silverlight Community PM

I haven't blogged in a while and like always.. I have plenty of excuses but I won't bore you with them. :) So what have I been up to?

Well, like all products, once you've shipped there is a standard amount of churn in the organization. Anyways, the dust has mostly settled now and I've taken on the new role of Silverlight Community PM.

Ok... but what exactly does a Silverlight Community PM do? There are external and internal parts of the job, but things non-Microsoftie will see me do are stuff like.. I own the Silverlight MVP track. (If you are a Silverlight MVP, you've probably interacted with me already.) I will also be driving the Silverlight Toolkit project. Besides those, I'll also work closely with our Evangelists (Adam and Tim) to help drive events with the Silverlight Insiders and Silverlight EAP groups as well as work closely with Tim and Jesse to see how the product team can help contribute to the awseome content on Silverlight.NET. Of course, I'll also look to you guys, our dedicated Silverlight customers, to let me know how you'd like to better interact with the product team and help better drive your feedback directly into our product.

Right now, I'm working to get our PDC ducks in a row and make sure we have a splash at PDC. Stay tuned!
