Carl Prothman turns blue!

That’s right. My friend, and fellow MVP and INETA guy, Carl Prothman has signed-on to Microsoft as a full time employee (sucker). Carl is the man when it comes to many things, especially the collecting of connection strings. I pitch his site wherever I travel.

He is going to be working in the Community group as a Software Developer Engineer (SDE). Rumor has it that he’ll be working for Doug Seven (another community soul who went to the blue-side a few years ago).

It seems that Microsoft has been hiring a record number of folks over the last several weeks (as many as 150/week Carl said).

I think this is a perfect fit for Carl, as he is “Mr. Community” up in the Seattle area.
