Well, today is my 1 year anniversary as a Full Time Employee (FTE) at Microsoft, which also happens to the Indian holiday of Gandhi Jayanti (commemorating the birth of Mahatma Ghandi), and is the International Day of Non-Violence. In other words, it's a good day :)
Scott Hanselman has a great write-up of his first few weeks at Microsoft, and his impressions complement mine (I had a bit longer to drink the kool-aid). Scott mentions "emptying the ocean with a teaspoon", and I have heard of drinking from a firehose, but the concept is the same. When you are changing the world, there is significantly more in the "to do" pile than there are hours in the day. I wouldn't have it any other way ;)
So what have I done in the last year? In no particular order:
All-in-all, it was a very good year, and I love working for Microsoft even more than I did a year ago. Here's to the next one!
Congrats on your Anniversary

Congratulations on completing your 1 year. I just finished Year #2 so I'm not that far ahea of you!
