Hello (again) world! Also: The Hiring Chronicles.

Hello world!

It's been a while, but I'm coming out of hibernation to mention a couple of things --

We've been working super hard on a bunch of new things and we're getting excited to show you some of what we've been doing at the PDC this October. Expect a pick-up in the number of blog posts related to some of the ideas that we're currently playing with, as well as some guidance on how to use some of the features that you've probably discovering in Vista. It's been a while since I've blogged, but that means I have a bunch of topics stored up, so get ready to ask questions, give feedback or suggestions, and add me back to or remove me from your RSS feed. :)

I also wanted to mention for all aspiring PMs out there that we're hiring. If you consider yourself an engineering-oriented business thinker, or a business-oriented engineer, we want to hear from you. We have a few new projects and we're trying to find smart and passionate people to add to our team. If you're that person at the party saying "If I only worked for Microsoft, I'd fix Windows by doing [x]," this is your chance to make [x] a reality. We work on core Windows and .NET features, so empathy with software developers is a must. We're thinking about all new ways to enrich the set of developer features across a variety of programming models, and we need creative, smart engineers to help us make that a reality.

You can take a look at a couple of job listings here and here. You can also email me with any questions that you have. I'd love to hear from you.

More to follow soon!
