Scott Hanselman is one of the most talented “programmer bloggers” out there. He’s been pretty heavy on Microsoft stuff for years, which is fine cause there’s millions of developers who care about .NET and all that which is in Microsoft’s ecosystem.
Today he announced he’s going to Microsoft to work for Scott Guthrie. People who work inside Microsoft tell me Scott’s organization is one that really is rocking and rolling (I saw that for myself over the years — Guthrie is one of those people who, when you meet him, makes you feel good about where Microsoft is going).
Anyway, this post would be fine if it ended up at just “congrats to Scott and Scott.”
But there’s more to this story.
Hanselman works with my brother up in Portland and he works with another guy I’ve known since the early 1990s: Phil Weber. Both were at the blogger dinner. I’ve known Hanselman since the 1990s when I helped plan Visual Basic Insiders’ Technical Summits too.
It’s a small world and getting smaller.
Microsoft just got another great guy. Reminds me again of Don Box, Chris Sells, and so many others who are working over in building 42. Can’t wait to hear more about what they are all working on. I’m already subscribed to Hanselman’s blog, so I’m sure that’ll be a good place for info about what that wild crew is working on.
