Betsy muses on something I have been thinking for a while:
But I remember looking around at the faces of the search employees around me which were carrying a totally different vibe than two years ago when I left search for Xbox. It's hard to explain those ineffable crowd moments where you know folks are committed and its a quiet commitment, not rowdy, not arrogant, but just in it. Every time I faced a skeptical customer at a demo (you know who you are MS Hater Guy) I remembered that sea of faces, just in it. Showing up and saying hello to the doubters and the haters.
It is indeed great to be working with a committed, capable group of people focused on solving the same thing
. I enjoy my job a lot.
