Microsoft Board Member Steps Down

Shirley, you're joking. No, it's true! It's all over for Jon Shirley at Microsoft, as the venerable Redmonder is leaving the company's board of directors.

Staying on the Microsoft board, however, is Texas Christian University basketball legend Dr. James Cash, who also happens to be a former Harvard Business School bigwig and is part of the team that owns...the World Champion Boston Celtics! And if you're thinking that we threw this Shirley entry in just as an excuse for a gratuitous TCU reference and another chance to mention the Celtics, well, you're right. But we really do love James Cash.
