New RD blogger: Andreas Eide. Yet another European Microsoft Regional Director is blogging: Andreas Eide from Norway. Andreas runs one of the most active .NET user-groups in Europe (the Norwegian .NET User Group), is co-author of a couple of books, a fabulous person to listen to, talk to, work with and work for (according to own experience and all that I've heard on my tours through Norway), and .... find out yourself: RSS, Radio, Blog.

Clemens spotted Andreas blogging! Looks like he was hooked up by my favorite Swedes, Per & Sten Sundblad. We're all "Microsoft Regional Directors," I'm a Regional Director for Pacific Northwest, specifically Oregon.
What's a Regional Director you ask??
RDs are 130 partners in 50 countries. Microsoft Regional Directors are independent developers and architects, volunteers chosen for their leadership in their local technology circles, whose primary purpose is to share information about Microsoft technologies with their developer communities and to provide feedback from developers to Microsoft. Regional Directors are not Microsoft employees, but instead are industry experts who choose Microsoft technology in order to help their customers reach business goals and objectives. www.microsoft.com/rd
