Microsoft loses a good one

Niall Kennedy is leaving Microsoft to start his own business. Sounds like Niall got a little fed up waiting for Microsoft to follow through on promises that were made to him about resourcing a project he was passionate about. Big companies can do that, dammit.

Having heard some of his ideas (though he probably doesn't remember, I met Niall while I was in the bay area attending one of his tech sessions) I'm convinced MS has let an amazing opportunity go begging. I can't wait to see what Niall comes up with working for himself in a startup!

Good luck Niall!

It's tough to forget people visiting from overseas who come to your local event. Thanks for keeping up with the latest tech no matter where it is located!
