The Start of What's Next

Today is the start of What's Next Two years and a few months after the acquisition of MessageCast, the company I started in my living room, I've begun transitioning my responsibilities to a peer at Microsoft. The change is bittersweet; I am looking forward to tackling new projects but at the same time find it hard to let go of an idea I had in 2001. The assembled team was one of the strongest I have ever built. We faced a number of tough technical and organizational challenges. I learned many things along the way, one of which is that to be successful at Microsoft, all paths lead to Redmond. Working from a satellite campus like SVC, the opportunities pale in comparison. Once I've finished transitioning my responsibilities I'll be starting the next chapter. A little frightening, but overall, working on What's Next is as exciting as it gets.
