Microsoft People: Some of the Coolest Newsmakers We Met in 2011


REDMOND, Wash. – Dec. 21, 2011 – A real pleasure of working on the Microsoft News Center is being able to introduce you to fascinating people doing interesting and exciting things, both inside and outside the company. It’s a real challenge to pick a selection of these profile stories for our end-of-year slide show. See and hear from some of the people we connected with in 2011, from tech luminaries such as Jaron Lanier and Bill Buxton to lesser-known but equally inspiring Microsoft employees such as Patricia Walsh and Albert Rocker. You can also hear from some of the engineering teams behind popular products such as Bing and Windows Phone. We hope you agree that all their stories are worth sharing.
