So I said that we'd done a lot while I was away , other gems now sifted from my inbox include.
Here at Tech-ed IT-Forum I went to dinner with some people from the PowerShell community. I heard someone say afterwards something to the effect "If anyone in Microsoft has a right to a huge ego, it's Jeffrey, but he's really nice and wanted to hear what I had to say". I interviewed Jeffrey the following morning, and his philosophy about listening to customers came out in the interview (which will be posted early next week - it probably on Edge). When I go to these events I'm usually "man on a mission"; this time I've not got quite the same sense of purpose - I'm just networking with people at random: I'm not exactly Mr Smalltalk at the best of times, and I'm only just over my jet lag which has made me feel even less inclined to chat. But I think my interview with Jeffrey is a good one, and one of my highlights of the show. The weird moment of Tech-ed was meeting Hugh Macleod: not so much for meeting him, but I happened to be wearing a Blue-Monster Shirt at the time. So our evening of drinks was one long round of Eileen saying to people "This is Hugh" [pause] "He drew the that" - [pointing to my shirt] and Hugh getting the reaction "Ohmygod ohmygod - you're him !"
It's great to be back home in the UK after my extended trip - the warm waters of the Bahamas seem so
