What a shock when I found out about Steve Riley being kicked out of Microsoft as part of a restructuring. If you ever attended Tech Ed conferences, then you must have seen Steve in action. His sessions were and still are legendary. The session I enjoyed most was: Defending Layer 8
I am sorry to hear you go, Steve, but I am sure you will be around soon.
Read all about Steve on his blog soon to disappear I gues: http://blogs.technet.com/steriley/archive/2009/05/06/good-bye-and-good-luck.aspx
Good news: His new blog can be found at http://msinfluentials.com/blogs/steveriley/default.aspx
