Microsoft employee #44995 has left the building.


So what do you do on the last day of an 18-year career at Microsoft?

Well, if you’re me, you wipe your machines, visit Bill Gates’ chunk of the Berlin Wall, grab another free lunch and some inspiration at a talk about Code for America, use up a few punch cards at The Commons, say goodbye to your teammates, hand in your badge, shoot some confetti on the way out, take your favorite walk, hit Starbucks one last time with a friend, and head home to celebrate for the night.

And now, no more excuses for why all the ideas that interest and inspire me lay unrealized in my head.

Time to make them happen!
