Greg goes to China!July 17, 2008
Hello to all my loyal readers. Have you been wondering why there has been no stories as of late? I’ve been busy as snot. We’re in ship cycle right now and I’ve been putting the plans for my great China escapade together.
Over the next week I will be traveling to China for work. I will be posting on techrivet.com about my observations and thoughts on the experience. It’s gonna be a great trip; certainly for me and hopefully an interesting read for you.
I’d like to take this moment to recognize Microsoft, who I work for, and the forward thinking team and group I am part of.
I work for the Unlimited Potential Group. We’re focused on the emerging markets and bringing Microsoft technology to bear in the effort to raise everyone’s quality of life. To quote our mission statement: “Ultimately our mission is to enable sustained social and economic opportunity for those at the middle and bottom of the world’s economic pyramid—the next 5 billion people.”
I won’t be discussing what I am doing for Microsoft in China (although it is quite cool), but intend to focus on the personal experiences and people I meet. I will of course be looking at it from a technical perspective whenever appropriate. Hopefully it will keep you entertained.
So tune in. I’ll be posting here as often as I can, hopefully at least once per day and perhaps more than that. I depart for China on the 19th of July and return on the 26th.
