Fifth the in the Twelve Podcasts of Christmas 2008!
Stephen, with the TVP Building 2 Christmas tree in the background!
“Identity management is important. As soon as folks know what you look like, every Santa and his elf want to podcast with you!”
One of Stephen’s sessions at the Birmingham launch (mentioned in the podcast!)
Earlier this year, 2008, Birmingham was host to the Microsoft Heroes Happen Here product launch. VBUG’s Andrew Westgarth and myself were allowed to roam around recording interviews with many of the Microsoft Executives and Microsoft evangelists!
In this podcast, we’re sitting on a comfortable sofa with Microsoft’s Stephen Lamb. Recorded in March 2008, it is before Stephen switched to his PR role, so the topic is security. However, HHH was a community event too, so we chat about community for a bit too.
I do have a more recent podcast with Stephen, recorded early December 2008. It covers Stephen’s new PR role and will be released as part of the Twelve Podcasts of Christmas!
