Being Microsoft (v2)

Posted: June 10, 2005 in Uncategorized

My OMMA panel on Tuesday was spirited and included a cast of characters like Jason Calacanis of Weblogs and Jay Stockwell of Intelliseek (who’s a professional comedian in his spare time!).

The first thing you do on a panel is give a quick overview about what your company does.

For years, I would say, "I’m Royal Farros and my company, MessageCast, does real-time alerting."

I found myself blurting out my standard opening… but stumbled as I remember I’m now Microsoft.

I recovered by saying:  "I used to say that we did real-time alerting… but now that we’re Microsoft, I guess we pretty much do just about everything in the entire world!"

That’s another thing you can’t say everyday, eh?
