The Realm of the Verbal Processor

Jarvis's Ramblings


A few weeks ago I got an email from Rod Trent about MMS. He said that Microsoft was looking for “face of the customer” videos to show during various sessions at MMS this year. I was already planning to put together a video to use at a technology meeting that we have at the office every month, so I figured I’d send it in. The original video plan was to take the OSD process and condense it to five minutes so that I could present it at that technology meeting.

As I got to thinking about the video, the concept for the video changed a bit. I still wanted it to communicate what I’ve done with SCCM and OSD, but I wanted it to be funny also. I talked to a friend at the office who is a director/videographer, and he did a quick video shoot and processed the video for me. A really big thanks to John Boggs for doing that. Thanks bud!

Anyway, I sent in the video, and the guys at Microsoft loved it. I got an email from Bill Anderson who is the Lead Program Manager for SCCM. He said their whole team was laughing hysterically at it, and they want to use it during the “State of the Nation” session at MMS. This is the largest session at MMS outside of the keynotes! There will probably be 2000 people at that session. Very cool!

Now…with that said…I personally feel like I look like a dork. It was my first time in front of a camera…and it shows. The second half of the video makes up for it though. I’m going to post the video on my blog after the session (tomorrow at 10:15am Pacific). Come back to take a look at it. I have it scheduled to post at 11:00am Pacific.
