George Mannes, a writer for Money Magazine, emailed me the other day with a question about ASP.NET.
He’s writing an article about returning to the job market after an extended absence, and someone he interviewed made a passing mention of ASP.NET. He wanted to make sure he characterized it correctly (he asked “Is it a language, a technology, a development system?”).
This was cool for a few reasons:
- First, it’s a compliment to be asked to verify technical information for a story. He contacted me through my blog, so he must have done a search for ASP.NET, read through my posts and decided I would be able to give him some insight into our acronym-riddled world of software development.
- Second, I’m happy there are writers who take such pride in providing the correct information that they would go to the extent of contacting me to verify one sentence in an article about something unrelated to technology. Bravo.
- Third, I’m a subscriber to Money Magazine, which means I’m looking forward to the February issue where I can see that one sentence in all its glory…
