Microsoft Considers Moving HQ to Utah

Okay, not really…

But in a big vote of confidence for all of us Utah guys, here\’s the real news. Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer will be the keynote speaker at the October 27th Utah Technology Council Hall of Fame dinner at the Little America Hotel in Salt Lake City. I didn\’t believe the email I got until I confirmed the truth of this in the Deseret News article.

This UTC Hall of Fame dinner is my favorite event in Utah every year. This one will be especially exciting, especially if Ballmer gives a rousing keynote. (He\’s a great performer, from what I\’ve seen on TV and some web videos of him.)

I\’m totally stoked for this event, can\’t wait to see Steve Ballmer in person, and I\’ll definitely put this on my calendar right now.

One thought on “Microsoft Considers Moving HQ to Utah

  1. Steve Ballmer is pretty intense- the closest encounter I’ve had with the guy was on a conference call where he was one of many participants.

    One of the guys said something he didn’t believe, and boy, it has been a while since I’ve seen someone get called on the carpet like that.

    I haven’t gone to an event like this in Utah for a long time, I’ll have to book some seats for this one.
