Derek Snyder
Before coming to Microsoft, Derek had two passions: web development and mobile devices. Spending the last 8 years developing for the web, Derek was able to conjoin his two passions when he founded pocketnow.com, a news and review blog covering handhelds and converged devices. The ability to add third party applications to a phone, just like a PC, was always of greatest interest. With the web maturing more and more each day, Derek looks to the future: the possibility that applications could exist in the form of a web service, consumed by a world of devices.
