Freelance journalist/blogger Mary Jo Foley has nothing to disclose. WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get). I do not own Microsoft stock or stock in any of its partners or competitors. I have done paid speaking engagements for Microsoft and some of its partners, but none where all the content is not my own.
