Talking about Microsoft inside Microsoft

When I published back in May my book about Microsoft’s future — Microsoft 2.0 — I had no idea that one day I’d be talking about it inside the hallowed halls of Microsoft with real, live Microsoft employees.

When I published back in May my book about Microsoft's future -- Microsoft 2.0 -- I had no idea that one day I'd be talking about it inside the hallowed halls of Microsoft with real, live Microsoft employees.

That didn't happen (at least not yet) here in the U.S. But when I was visiting London earlier this fall, Eileen Brown, Manager of the IT Pro Evangelist Team, graciously agreed to host me at the company's Reading, UK facility.

After riding on what is the rough the equivalent of Microsoft's corporate shuttle (but this time on the other side of the pond), I arrived at Reading's Building 3, where I had the chance to field questions from Brown, as well as a number of the Softies working there. (There was even one non-employee guest, Mark Wilson, who did a great blog post about my Q&A.)

Brown and her crew turned our chat into a podcast, which can be downloaded here. Thanks to all the attendees for some great, thought-provoking questions.
