Yesterday was my last day at Microsoft. I worked there a year. When I reflect on 2009, I think of it as the Year of Darkness. I only wrote a couple blog posts. I was inactive in the OpenID community. I did not talk to press or analysts. I gave no public presentations.
On the positive side, I was given the opportunity to herd the cats on OAuth WRAP and get it out the door. I am happy I as able to do that. I also met some great people at Microsoft.
Having never worked in a large company, working at Microsoft was an invaluable experience for first hand knowledge on how large companies work. I definitely got experience. More than I anticipated. Will I work for another large company? Sure, given the right opportunity. I have a better idea on what parameters are needed to be successful in a large company.
