5:18 PM EST and I'm here at the Islandia Marriot
for Microsoft's roadshow
where I get back to my roots and rub elbows and talk high tech. Even better, following the event is the Long Island dot NET User Group. As co-Founder, I'm really proud about how its become one of the most popular tech associations on Lawn Guyland; certainly helps that we have Microsoft to pay for the pizza and shwag.
This is the kind of stuff that recruiters should be part of - year round. Why most recruiters just attend HR related association meetings is anathema to me.
