Like every other company out there, Microsoft likes to encourage employees to refer people they know who might be a good fit to join the company. It seems the HR department sent out a mass mailing last week and guess whose ugly mug was used as part of the campaign?



I assume this was just reusing the stock photo from my page on the Microsoft Careers site as opposed to an exhortation to Microsoft employees to hire more people like me. We only need so many paper pushing PMs. ;)

It's still pretty sweet though.

You look like you're abusing yourself in that photo.

...maybe its cos you looked happy. Get a snap of most engineers anywhere near a deadline and you get an expression of hate mixed with that void-of-thought look from WWI trench photos.

Ugly, yes. But also brilliant. :)
Great writing.

Nice! Well, except for the unfortunate masses who are now exposed to your picture. ;)

Oh Dare...I mean Oh Dear :)
I'm just glad they didn't use my photo on this:

Dare, Yes, Microsoft needs more people like you. Recent additions like JJ Allaire, and Ray Ozzie are pretty good too. JJ told me he enjoys working with you and your team. You guys are doing a great job. Your blog is awesome too.
