Day 1 at Microsoft

Thought I'd mark the moment when I set off into the pre-dawn fog on the first step of what promises to be quite the adventure. Today's my first day working at Microsoft, where I'm going to be - wait, am - a PR Manager. (More background here.)

What does it mean? I'll let you know once I get there and immerse myself in a company I've studied, admired, written and spoken about for as long as I can remember. I'm honored to have the opportunity, and intend to grab it as tightly as I can and do everything in my power to turn it into something remarkable.

In the meantime, I'm overwhelmed with your messages and good wishes, and can't thank you enough for helping me along on what's become a pretty incredible journey. From the looks of it, it's about to become a lot more interesting.

Onward...

THEY have chosen well!. Dude, u will do fine!. You're a humble man- you haven't been jaded like so many PR people can/have become..and in a few years I doubt very much that you will be...

I'm late to the party as usual. I hope you are having fun. As I have so often said to my boss "spin it baby!"
