I've moved to Ireland... Hotmail is in Mountain View, California. The observant reader may put 2 & 2 together and think: "Hotmail has moved to Ireland!" Fortunately most people who read this blog are observant and intelligent (you do read this blog, after all ;) ).
While my original plan was to bring some development resources with me to Ireland, I ended up instead joining up with a growing team here which is building components for a new web analytics project code named "Gatineau".
Gatineau will be Microsoft's entry in the the web analytics market. While the nuts and bolts of the operation are in Redmond, here in Ireland we're building some cool, extra bits to pile into the mix. I wish I could provide some more detail as I'm really excited about what we're doing (both here and in Redmond) but for now, things are under wraps.
One of our new planners, Ian, has provided a quick run down of what's going on, it's not a tell-all by any stretch, but it does give a bit more information.
