Justin Rudd writes in his blog post entited Your Attention Please

After 3 years and 3 months, I am leaving my position at Amazon.com on December 31st.
...
My next “gig” is one that I am extraordinarily excited about.  I’m going to Microsoft to be part of the Live Labs team.  This group really excites me because it gives me a chance to find new areas for Microsoft Live to get into, to expand on what Microsoft Live already has, work closely with Microsoft Research, etc.  This is a job that really excites the tinkerer side of my brain.  I can’t wait to get started.

Many thanks to Dare Obasanjo for being my employee referral

Justin is my second official referral of someone I've "known" via reading their blog. I hope he ends up working at Microsoft a little longer than the last blog friend I referred. :)

Dare - Curious how you came upon his blog and what about the blog appealed to you, and/or suggested that he might be a good fit for Microsoft?

I've been reading his blog off and on for the past few years and he struck me as a smart guy. That's about it really.
