It's really sad that Mini-Microsoft is going to stop blogging:
His/her blog and the user comments were, at least for me, really inspirational and have given me food for thought on numerous topics - from team reviews, to team organization and delivery of software. It was also a great way to understand what's happening behind the scenes at Microsoft. Knowing part of the problems that plague the Redmond colossus helped me understand how and why Microsoft does things in a certain way.
Mini vNext, where areth thou? We need you...
