I have spent the last 2 weeks in bliss. By bliss, I mean one week at the MVP Summit with almost 2000 of my colleagues and 1 week at my new position with DynamicWeb NA. I am driven by my passion to connect and excel in my daily job and with the community that I have become a part of. For me, that is IIS. I was lucky enough 3 years ago to receive my first MVP award and just joined a company that recognizes that passion and empowers me to support it.
I missed some friends at the Summit and made even more. It is truly something that I never want to lose. The kinsmanship of like-minded individuals that excel at certain things is unbelievable. If you want to start committing yourself to the community, you should reach out to me. I work on the CI Security IIS benchhmark and we are looking for other people to become active by devoting time to research/edit/author/be a community member for the benchmark with the small team that is currently doing the work. I would love to have additional input and help in the upkeep of this document.
Follow me on twitter. That is really where I try to keep work related stuff, but it also bleeds over to Facebook. Either is fine. If you send me a friend request, I will accept it. I am one of those FB people. 🙂
Anyway, this is a rambling post, but I just can’t help myself. Thank you Brad and Karla Kingsley (know you don’t really do twitter so I’ll save the link for later) for what you started with me at OrcsWeb and Scott for remembering and reaching out when DynamicWeb NA was looking for someone like me. Never burn technical bridges because that could be your next opportunity.
Hoping that I’ll be posting more soon.
