Some Reading and Thoughts

Smart Guys on Wall Street from the New York Times

Rico Mariani looks back on his personal history of Visual Studio while working at Microsoft.

Matt Davey is having some fun with StreamInsight (aka Orinoco). When I was at the Microsoft Design Review last January, I was jumping up and down about some of the interesting design decisions that the Orinoco team make concerning their adapter model. Hopefully, with more people chiming in, the StreamInsight guys will refactor their model while they are in CTP mode. Or, at least, before I have to start using it again.

Meanwhile, I am down to less than 2 weeks left before my Gardening Leave is over. It's great to get a paycheck while I am sitting at home, but I REALLY need to get back to work. I have been occupied with my other blog that is devoted to Magma, the French band that I have been addicted to for the past 35 years. If any of you Capital Markets guys are fans of progressive music, I would love to hear about it.

Rodrick Brown just left the Munis Tech area of my former firm and has struck out on his own with his own shop, Orvid Technologies.
