Catching up on news after the holidays. My friend Shawn Morrissey who is a Program Manager on the project, writes with a quick update on Windows Vista Sidebar, named by BetaNews as, “Vista’s most prominent new feature”.
Some of you have noticed my job has changed. I love Windows Sidebar and believe strongly in the platform the team is delivering. However, recently I was made, “An offer too good to refuse” to join the staff of the VP of the Windows Digital Media Division at Microsoft. While I cannot go into specifics of my job, my title is still Senior Program Manager, I’m still writing specs, and working on exciting things I cannot discuss right now. Departing the Sidebar team was very tough, but it does afford me the opportunity to return to my main passion- digital media and entertainment.
I’ll continue to write here about Windows Sidebar, Vista, and all things Digital Media. Of course, the best place for details continues to be www.microsoftgadgets.com. But as I told a friend, I’m not going to rehash the same device reports you see elsewhere. So… if there are specific topics you’d like to see me tackle, or questions you have, please let me know.
