Microspotting

Frankarr recently wrote on his blog "I cant believe I haven't written about Microspotting before." Well, I can't believe I haven't heard about Microspotting before! The site is a blog maintained by Ariel, a freelance writer and author, who also works at Microsoft. She describes herself as "the person you thought would never work at MSFT." But after getting laid off from a Web 2.0 startup in 2007, she interviewed for a job at Microsoft and was surprised how well the job fit in with her schedule. She writes:

Did it matter that I could only work three days a week because I was busy with my book and other projects? Nope! Would I get the same famous MSFT benefits as a 40-hour/week employee? Pretty much! Did it matter that I have pink hair and am prone to accidentally cussing in team meetings? Nope! What about the fact that I don’t like working before 10am? No problem!

As she began working there, she realized that she had many misconceptions about the company. It wasn't all boring and corporate after all. She started meeting smart and inspiring people, so she decided to start a blog which profiles them. That blog is Microspotting.

Some recent entries include interviews like the following:

Definitely a great read. Subscribed!

    Well, it's like a big collection of different objects, which we can zoom in. Always wanted to know how a fly looks in x1000.
