I have unfortunately been prevented from speaking at TechEd in New Zealand, Australia, and Japan; the final events I was planning to speak at before I leave Microsoft on September 1. I cannot express how terrible I feel about this. The hope was that these events were supposed to be an opportunity to celebrate the past and the future before I move on. The only thing I can say is that I hope to see everyone at some other event in the future.Sorry.
I had a great one on one chat with Jesper at the Security Summits here in Oz earlier this year. It would have been great to catch up one last time before his departure from Microsoft.
You shall be missed Jesper, and I wish you all the best with the new job at Amazon.
