Believe it or not, I'm Dave Kramer - the author of the Microsoft history piece you quoted!

I'm glad you liked it - not many people can even find it anymore. I wrote it to be published just before the calendar ticked over to 2000.

I actually left Microsoft in 2003 and now write a videogame news blog at gamestay.com. I'm also working in the healthcare arena helping people with chronic illnesses at healthtalk.com. I'm actively working to help launch a healthcare blog; stay tuned!

Anyway, I'm glad to see that a piece of work I contributed has found new life in the blogging community. :-)

Anyway, check out my sites if you like.
