Jim DuBois Named to Microsoft CIO Position

Microsoft announced today that Jim DuBois is the new chief information officer (CIO) of the company.

DuBois takes the position vacated by former Microsoft CIO Tony Scott, who left the company this summer. Scott later joined VMware in August as the virtualization giant's new CIO.

DuBois became Microsoft's interim CIO after Scott's departure. He will step into the CIO role full-time starting on Jan. 1 and report to Chief Operating Officer Kevin Turner, according to Microsoft's announcement.

DuBois is a 20-year Microsoft veteran. Most recently, he was vice president of Microsoft IT Products and Services. He has also served as general manager of IT at the company.

As CIO, DuBois will be responsible for leading a "team of employees overseeing Microsoft IT applications, infrastructure, solution delivery and process excellence," according to Microsoft.

"Jim has demonstrated outstanding leadership in managing our IT organization through the transition period while continuing to position IT as a strategic asset and growth lever for Microsoft," Turner said in a prepared statement, adding that "[DuBois'] proven ability in creating initiatives that build business value and support customers and partners will be invaluable to Microsoft as we continue to accelerate our transformation to a devices-and-services company."

Posts should indlcue one or more links as well as a thoughtful articulation of your deconstruction, interpretation, critique or analysis of the contents of the link(s) you indlcue. Posts that are overly short or merely declare an opinion without any substantial support or explanation are probably not right for Partial Objects. I'm not saying the piece is bad. It's perfectly fine for classical. Not sufficiently novel for my own satisfaction, but it seems really unusual that this wasn't flagged as inappropriate. This doesn't seem like the place for this kind of content. Is this just here to support the idea that this website is high brow ? [url=]fyvnhal[/url] [link=]ljyqxg[/link]

It's a mystery what would http://p DOT anyone to take the time to come and whine that the content on somebody else's site doesn't conform to their own tastes, but the internet seems to be full of such mysteries. If it does bug you, take it up with the management, if you can.As for the sonata, I really liked the first 3 minutes or so, but then the piano started to dominate without really conveying that much. There was another really good minute starting around 7:00 or so, until right before the funny video edit (what happened there?), and then the piano started doing the bull-in-a-china-cabinet thing again for a couple of minutes. Around minute 10 it started getting better again. I'm not a connaisseur, but despite the good parts, it seemed kinda hectic and disjointed, but not in an enlightening way.Another tip would be just to post the audio file and forget the video. Artists like Lady Gaga need video, and nobody really wants to just listen to them. With this, though, the video is more of a distraction, and I got more from the piece when I left the video running but didn't watch. The cellist sitting down in what appears to be disused yoga gear and the old lady getting up periodically to turn the page of the pianist's sheet music are even a bit visually silly. You're clearly trying to say something with the music, so focus on that. It's not clear that you have anything to say with the video. It seems just to be there as an alibi for Youtube, which is a justification that has nothing to do with art.
