For those who don't remember and the many more who never knew, RCPU stands for Redmond Channel Partner Update. For more than half a decade, I wrote the RCPU newsletter for my former employer, 1105 Media. And I loved it. I mean really loved it. It was the most fun I've had in my career.
Thanks to the grace of Scott Bekker, who still runs Redmond Channel Partner and does it exceptionally well, I got to write an entry for RCPU today (yes, it's at the link) for the first time in I can't remember how long. It's a look back at Microsoft Windows Vista--a favorite punching bag in my days as RCPU editor--and why it still casts a long shadow over Microsoft.
Incidentally, I had time to write an entry because I am, at the moment, between assignments. A shift away from written content at BusinessTown, which was really an excellent employer, left me as the odd person out, so I'm actively seeking both freelance and permanent opportunities as a journalist or marketing writer. Hit me up! And thanks to Scott for the opportunity to jump back into RCPU one more time.
