Yesterday was Day One of the Annual MS Global Briefing – targeted towards Field Sales and Consulting personnel. It was my first time to attend a MGB, and I was impressed. The only time that I had seen Steve Ballmer dance before was in the infamous “monkeyboy” clip of a few years ago. He did not disappoint.
MS will not disappoint with the continued growth in different markets. Keep your eyes open.
Scoble describes why employee blogging is a big deal at Microsoft. I’m still not sure what to do with mine, but I think it is important that this issue is respected.
I’ve been asked by a couple of people to describe my job function at Microsoft.
I’m an E-Business Product Technology Specialist for Microsoft, in the Sales group, primarily involved in Technical Pre-Sales opportunities. I specialize in the E-Business Server products, MS Content Management Server, MS Commerce Server, and MS Biztalk Server. I visit customers with Account Managers, and on my own, answering technical questions about the products, helping with product evaluations, etc.
It’s a great gig, and I’m enjoying it. Prior to this place, I worked in the same function for BroadVision, an E-Commerce software solution.

I’ve been here almost a year now, and am enjoying it very much.
Hi. Nice to meet you. My name is Owen Allen, and I’ve got a great and wonderful family. A beautiful wife, and four completely different and challenging and fun kids. We are enjoying Summer vacation right now, and the kids seem to enjoy it. I’m still working, of course. I work for Microsoft, and have been with the company for about 9 months, now.
