move to Microsoft:
I've accepted a new job as technical program manager at Microsoft, working on the MSN/Windows Live team, and Monday morning I begin my first day of work.
It's been a very productive six years at UserLand, which has seen blogging go from obscurity to commonplace, RSS and XML-based syndication go from experimental to mainstream (even required), web services go from dream to business model, and podcasting go from non-existent to the big time.
I've relied on Savin often over the years for help with UserLand's publishing and programming tools, especially when I was writing Radio UserLand Kick Start. I didn't know he was also a music mogul in Dallas until he joined the RSS Advisory Board and I had to write his bio.
Rock on, Jake!
