Go west

Looks like Charlie Kaufman has a new job:

Charlie Kaufman is the security architect for the Common Language Runtime (CLR) group at Microsoft. Prior to that, he was security architect for Lotus Notes & Domino.

Barry Briggs, Charlie Kaufmann, Cliff Reeves, Eddie Amos, Gary Devendorf, Gregg Prickril, Jim Bernardo, Mark Lenci, Steve Lewis, Wolfgang Hilpert ... They can start a club in Redmond.


Yep. Charlie is on the IAB and I noticed that his address was changed on their site and mentioned it when I posted a link to the IAB report on the Verisign SiteFinder controversy last month. I had heard about his move through other channels just a few days before that. Too bad for IBM. Probably good for Charlie though.

Pretty good for M$ too I would have thought!

plus steve lewis, mark lenci and eddie amos

Cliff Reeves, 2003-10-21

Thx, Cliff. Added them to the list.

well there should be two clubs really -- the people who are worth whatever it took to get them to MS, and the people who aren't missed. I'll leave it to your readers to decide who is in which club.
(not bitter, just tired of being asked about "defections"; MS has approached me before about going to work for them. not interested.)

Oh and you can add a whole bunch of people now in MS's sales organization to this list too...

I don't know Charlie, but from the descriptions on the site I'd like to know him -- at least in the guise of my day job as editor of the programming sections at InformIT. Anybody want to provide an introduction?

(Which isn't to say that I would object to any of the techies here writing for me. If you're vaguely interested, drop me a line and I'll give you the editorial song and dance.)

Well, IBM laid me off so I'd guess I'm in the "people who aren't missed" club. Although, I still get plenty of mail from Notes developers asking questions and commenting on my articles and demos.

I get the feeling that notes developers are also in this group according to IBM.

Domino does Dot Net.
