Microsoft layoffs impact Exchange technical writers - where now for documentation? Commented on: 4 days ago (September 25, 2014)

Some of the folks affected by the cuts asked me to keep their names out of this post; others were quite happy to be cited. To keep everyone happy, I decided to go along the path of not identifying...

Wrapping up Exchange Connections 2014 Commented on: 6 days ago (September 23, 2014)

I'm sorry, but there are no plans to run an EMEA Exchange Connections event. There are many local user group events run in different countries and perhaps they will invite some of the Connections...
