It was an amazing day around 50 deg with constant rain. There was a huge hill around mile 9 and I was really tired but Team in Training folks had put some pictures of cancer survivors especially one kid was so inspiring in the picture that pain was gone in few seconds.
This week was 10th anniversary of Xbox and it was my 1st week anniversary at Xbox engineering. Yes you heard me right. I moved to Xbox live team and will be working on content services. Content services are web services that power your Xbox console. My area of focus will be content discovery and search. It is a fascinating space and am sure tons for me to learn. Super excited to go from team that build cloud computing platform to team that is building one of the most saleable cloud application that powers millions of devices.
I enjoyed every bit of my time in Windows Azure Product Management especially working with the team to deliver Windows Azure Marketplace in 26 countries. Will miss my team but am looking forward to my time in Xbox now.
Xbox Turns Ten!

On Sunday, November 6, about 45,000 runners will stampede through the five boroughs of the Big Apple in the 2011 ING New York City Marathon.
