In the words of Stephen Forte, “Bid early, bid often.”

I am constantly amazed at the technical breadth and depth of the team of Microsoft Regional Directors… Roughly 150 people from every corner of the world who not only work in technology but also love it (well, most of the time :)…  I’ve been honored to be a member of this community for the past two years and they never cease to impress me. This blog entry only takes my ever-increasing respect for this group up a notch (especially for having thought about it and inspired us to join in)!

Fellow RD Stephen Forte, working with the Data Farm guru Julia Lerman, asked a group of RDs to donate 1 hour of their time – to be auctioned off on EBay – with all proceeds going to help fund relief efforts in the Aceh Province of Indonesia. 30 RDs have and I’m truly excited to be a part of it.

So, bid early, bid often. The auction runs through the 2nd of February 2005 at 6PM PST.
