Meet one of the faces behind

Recently Maryam interviewed Sanaz Ahari of Microsoft’s in her brand new office up in Redmond, WA. She talks about a range of stuff, including what it’s like to be a woman working in tech, along with what’s coming from the team. She is the main program manager on the home page team (what you see when you visit ).

25,000 items read on Google Reader

Google Reader has a cool new feature (thanks to Steve Rubel for pointing it out to me) that shows how many items I’ve read, and how many I’ve shared with you on my link blog. Here’s some stats:

I am subscribed to 483 feeds. Over the last 30 days I’ve read 24,891 items and have shared 1,657 items.

I’m about to share some more from gate C5 at the Portland Airport. Plane leaves soon, let’s see how many I can get through.

UPDATE: It now says I’ve read 25,185 items. Whew, what a reading session. Plane door closing now. Gotta run.
