I couldn't think of a geekier title, so this one will have to do! I'm Jack Freelander, a relatively new developer on the IIS Media team, having joined IIS in the fall of last year. In the past I have worked in Exchange (Outlook Web Access and HTTP-DAV) and later Microsoft TV. So far the people and the work here in IIS are a blast, though I have to wonder about my location at the opposite end of the hallway from most of the devs, just a few doors down from BillS. At first I figured that Bill must also be a rabid Tori Amos fan, but I've yet to find him rocking out to any Tori songs when I walk by. So I do my part to contribute to the noise and racket down here, which at the moment I seem to be the sole source of!
Presently I am working on the Bit Rate Throttling module for IIS7 that we just shipped, and will be working in other media-related areas in the near future. When not at work I divide my time between playing with my golden retrieviers, cleaning up after my golden retrievers, cooking, baking, getting speeding tickets, going to concerts, movies, etc. Currently I am trying to grow tomatoes, basil, cilantro and strawberries in my office, though I'm not sure how well my office redecorating plans will be received when the grow light & sprinkler system are finally installed, and the crickets move in.
I'm beginning to understand why I'm at this end of the hall. ;)
