Thanks Stu

Thanks Stu.

I recently helped a friend get a SysAdmin job here Redmond. That event got me thinking about how so many things in my life have been a result of my joining the Sunbelt-software Exchange list. For starters, being a Techwriter this will of course be a bulleted list:

  • 3 out of the last 4 jobs that I have held came from people I met because of this list; APCS in Florida, Dell, and now Microsoft
  • My wife and I were introduced to each other through a friend that I met via this list
  • I meet the MVPS and became a part of that program at Microsoft because of my level of community involvement that this list helped me to start
  • I attribute a great deal of what I know about technology to learning from, and trying to help fix other peoples problems on lists such as this
  • Some of my closest friends from all over the world were introduced to me by people that I met on the sunbelt list, For example, the WL and WLKM
  • A large number of my travels and trip destinations can be attributed to going to places to meet people who have become friends through this online community
  • One of the greatest things for me has been the opportunities that I’ve been given to give back to the community, helping people solve problems, find jobs, move places, meet new people, and many more.

    The single event of joining this list has been one of the greatest influences shaping my life over the past 9 years. Stu, I don’t know if you realize the impact on people’s lives you have had simply by hosting the list’s that your company hosts. I can say that from my world it has made a significant impact. I for one am very grateful, and just wanted to, yet again, say thank you for all that you have done for all of us, and the technology community as a whole.

    Thank you very much Stu.
