I’ve been pretty harsh on Microsoft lately. Hey, that’s normal, I guess, after you leave a job. Sort of a “jump on the man” impulse. Anyway, there are some killer things happening at Microsoft. Catching my eye is the hobbyist renaissance that’s happening there.
Another is the Made in Express Contest. I agreed to be a judge for free cause I believe in this kind of contest which encourages normal people to try their hand at software development. Anyway, like American Idol there’s an audience part to the judging and that’s open now.
