Brett Shirley really ought to blog

Eric Fleishman posted earlier about the fact that sometimes, blogging really is that hard in a hilarious sendup of Brett Shirley's indecisive plunge into the blogosphere.

I am glad I had not just sipped any Limonata, because if I had it would be all over the keyboard. Eric's post was freaking hilarious.

Brett is someone I met last year when Cathy and I were meeting with Andrew Goodsell to talk about NLS, Active Directory, and Longhorn.

Andy invited Brett to come by too. He struck me as incredibly knowledgable and I immediately took to him since he was the first person at Microsoft outside of the Access world who was not afraid of saying that three letter word that starts with "J" without immediately spouting out some kind of curse word. The way most people around here seem to enjoy doing. :-)

I definitely think that he should start posting in his blog. As soon as he has a single post I will add him to my list of blogs I read.

C'mon Brett!

Hey Michael!

Just wanted to drop you a note post-Tech Ed! I found ~Eric's rant about Brett from Joe Richards' site, and ~Eric's rant led me here. I didn't get a chance to say goodbye on the last day, so I just wanted to say that it was a great pleasure meeting you and I hope to run into you again at another event.

Of course, Laurs's blog has no RSS feed....

Ok, I will sit over there and wait patiently. :-)
