So Lonn's prior post really put the pressure on:

How does one live up to that?  Fun and Interesting?  Wow.  I'll do my best.

 

Who Am I?

I was a software developer (VB, ASP, C#, ASP.NET, SQL Server) for about five years.  I then went back to school and graduated from the University of Washington last June.  During the summer of 2006, I had the privilege of doing an internship on the Courseware team at Microsoft Learning (MSL).  I returned to MSL in July of 2007.

 

What Would You Say Ya Do Here?

I am the Product Manager for the Courseware Library (CWLib).  The CWLib is the manifestation of the work I did during my internship.  As an intern I was asked to propose a solution that would enable us to take advantage of all the content that exists in the world (internally at Microsoft and externally as well) on Microsoft's products and technologies.

 

Why Blog?

I've always had mixed feelings about blogs.  To me they've always seemed part self-promotion and part information.  My goals for this blog are:

  1. Share information - I want to share about MSL's Courseware business, our vision, new features, thinking, etc.
  2. Create a forum to connect in meaningful ways - I'm hoping that over time, this blog will enable us to connect with our Partners, MCTs, and students.  This won't be the only way in which we connect, but I think this can provide a forum that offers different value than email, mailers, conference calls, or presentations.
  3. Gather feedback - We have some ideas about where we want to take our business but we can't do it without feedback.


Cheers
