    Hello Microsoft Argentina! I arrived in country at about Noon and had a meeting at 1:00 PM. I'm here working with Pablo Anslemo and his security team. Pable only has me for 1.5 days, so he's doing a great job in getting me in front of as many customers as possible. I met with the Buenos Aires CSO Council...

    Holy crap it's cooooold . I'm certainly no lightweight when it comes to enduring cold...I'm from Wisconsin, I love the snow and ice, I play ice hockey, and I love to snowboard.

But the part that I thought would be easy (quality of the HD stream).....was. Still trying to work out exactly why...
  • Blog Post: Oh Canada!

    You know you've made it when you land on the Canadian IT Pro User Blog . I just returned from a whirlwind tour of Western Canada where I hit 4 cities in 4 days (Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver, and Victoria) and then had less than 20 hours at home before my next international adventure. I had a great time...

    I'm not Michael Howard . My software development background consisted of struggling through my two C++ classes in my undergraduate MIS program. Sure, I managed to convince my professors that I knew what a virtual function was and how it all worked, but I never really felt the "Call of the Code" like...
  • Blog Post: Live from Santiago, Chile

    "Buenos dias! Me llamo Senor Axford. ¿Habla usted inglés?" So far, this seems to sum up my travel adventure to Santiago, Chile (as well as the extent of my Spanish language skills). As many of you know, this is pretty much what I do: Fly to faraway places, talk to execs and IT Pros about information...
