What has Rick Been Up To? Part 2 – Putting on a Blue Badge

Let’s see… Since my life wasn’t busy enough with a new baby in the house, writing a book, trying to keep up with the whole MVP thing, and just in general having a very busy life, I have decided to add one more layer of complexity into the mix.

As of December 3rd, 2007, I will be joining Microsoft as an Escalation Engineer working in the Charlotte, NC office.  An unintended consequence of this is that I’ll no longer be able to hold the Microsoft MVP title for Windows Home Server.  From what I understand, I can continue to “serve” as an MVP until I take my spot as a FTE, and then my MVP status gets retired. 

Various friends and readers who have communicated with me in the past may know that I’ve had ambitions about working at Microsoft for a long time, and this final “fit” came together over the last couple months.

It’s a busy time, so I’m not going to promise anything quickly, but I have some rough notes around which I’m formulating a few blog posts about the Microsoft recruiting process and my own “journey”.  I think my “To Blog” list is at about 6 posts deep, and I’m not sure when I’ll get around to it.

Also, we’ve confirmed that one of my older kids has a bad cat allergy, so we’re trying to find a home for the last of our three cats, details can be seen here: http://www.animalrelieffund.org/animals/detail?AnimalID=321793
