    Joe Beda/Avalon guy leaving Microsoft:

    So, does this mean that his avatar will be removed from the "crew" column on the opening page of this site since he is no longer "in the cockpit"?

    LOL I had the same reaction, Jamie...

    It's not just leaving Microsoft, it's... it's... defecting to The Other Side.

    Unless Joe is really going to be a double agent? (Codename: Vector) <insert spy music>

    ..still say its mistake for ms to try to "take out" google

    if i ran ms - i would have partnered with them.. somehow

    let some of that "good vibe" rub off
    slowly buyem out and integrate
    but NOT exterminate

    Its akin to Disney vowing to kill Pixar
    bad taste in mouth

    Didn't they try that already?

    I'm not dead or anything Smiley

    Now, if you would have gone over to Sun, you could say "...but now I'm on the other side of the looking glass...". 

    Just a little 3-D humor there.
