Not suggesting for a second that I had a chance but I bottled it in the end ...
Sent Jeff an email within a few minutes of seeing the cross post on Channel9, started planning my video 'sell' (I was going to interview one my colleagues who specialises in Microsoft development). Had a chat with my wife about it (she has just started a new role herself so timing not great).
So why did I bottle out?
Well generally I am a great believer in keeping options open and by rights I should have applied just to see what happens. But in the end a few factors disuaded me, chief of which is probably knowing myself well enough to know that in spite of my enthusiasm I am not one of those guys with 'hidden' evangelist traits. Also, I 'secretly' filmed myself asking myself some questions* and wasn't impressed with what I saw. Lasty of all for the most part I pretty much love my role as a solutions architect/developer/geek and if it ain''t broke ...
Any other niners care to share their story?
