Precision Computing Turns One

Thu, Jun 8, 2006 2-minute read

It was a year ago now that Precision Computing, in its current form, opened its doors.  I’ve been writing something blog-like for longer, but it previously involved updating the HTML by hand :)

It’s been an interesting year – one in which we’ve seen the PowerShell community blossom from a group of passionate BetaPlace users, to a much larger and more diverse community.  We’ve played with a handful of new releases, experienced a long-awaited name change,  and perhaps most importantly – learned about PowerShell’s official release plans.

At Microsoft, we have a tradition for celebrating times like this.  When their anniversary rolls around, many people place chocolate on a chair outside of their office – usually 1 lb. for every year they’ve been at Microsoft.  It’s a great tradition – the people you work with get to indulge a little, and everybody enjoys the water cooler type of conversation that tends  to happen.

I obviously can’t distribute chocolate on the internet, but I’ve been thinking for a while about how to recreate the essence of the Microsoft chocolate tradition.  Here’s the idea:

If you own a blog, add a comment with a link to what you consider your “best” post in the last year or so.  If you don’t own a blog, add a comment with a link to a blog post that you consider to be very insightful or interesting.  Then, click around and enjoy the water cooler conversation!

Now, on for another year!
