As a general rule, I don’t blog about blogs. But I’ll make an exception for Jim Allchin now that he’s retired from the mothership.
Jim’s last Microsoft blog post entitled “What Comes Nest” was funny, sad, and insightful. My favorite part was:
- 4:30 PM: After a phone call with my Mom, I decided I needed to configure her account as a standard user for Windows Vista. This gives new meaning to “parental controls”, but a son has to do what a son has to do.
- 5:00 PM: Dinner with the family. After they finished asking who was this strange man sitting at the dinner table, we had a great conversation about the kids’ day. May have spent too much time asking them “how they would have done things better” and “what do they see as their key areas for growth.”
Funny guy! Who knows what he’ll achieve now that he’s an ex-Microsoftie. 🙂
