I am so glad that Pat Helland, who is a Microsoft employee, can call things by their name. As with his renaming of SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) to HST (Hooking Shit Together) this man is always worth listening. I can say the same about all the other interviews in TheServerSide.NET.
Update: Pat Helland, who I think I found today (October 3, 2005) lurking in this blog (I saw something interesting in my referal stats), hasn't been a Microsoft employee for a while. I hope he is doing well in his new job at Amazon.com.
