First, last month, InfoWorld’s Jon Udell went to work for Microsoft. See his auto-interview about the new job. He’ll be working as an evangelist on MSDN’s Channel 9. This is a savvy move by Microsoft, and I’m sure it’s good for Jon. It’s a bummer for InfoWorld, of course.
And now, Peter Coffee (pictured), arguably both the tallest and wisest technology pundit in the business, has left eWeek to work for Salesforce.com as director of platform research. Wow. Salesforce shoots, Salesforce scores. Good for Peter; he’ll be fantastic there. eWeek is significantly lessened by his departure.
