Holy crap, it's been a busy week. Launched a new site, practiced my interview skills on one of the top guys at Microsoft, spent 2 days with the people that beat up Vista every day... absolutely crazy.
First off, I wanted to thank everyone for all their positive comments about the site and its design. I've been acutely aware of all of LonghornBlogs.com's shortcomings, and I'm glad we were able to address most of them in a way that you all seem to like. If you have any issues, please don't hesitate to let me know.
Second, I wanted to thank Jim for letting me sit down with him, and the great people at WaggEd for putting it all together. It was an experience I'll never forget... and an interview that everyone will be talking about.
Third, I wanted to thank Paul Donnelly, Wedny Stidmon, and all the people at Microsoft that came out to talk about Vista & Longhorn for the Techbeta Tour. It was two days of some of the most informative briefings I've ever had at Microsoft... and by far the most productive in terms of being able to give feedback to the various teams.
Finally, I wanted to thank all the TechBeta testers for making the event so fun. It was a pleasure meeting all of you, talking shop, and comparing cell phones ;). Can't wait to do it again next time.
I have a lot that came up during my trip to Redmond that I'll be talking about over the next couple weeks... plus I'll be editing the podcast together over the next several days. So stay tuned... we're just getting started.
