Hello From The New Guy

I’m Brady Forrest, the new guy at O’Reilly Radar. My first task is working with Nat to Co-Chair Where 2.0. My first appearance will be at next week’s SDForum’s Search SIG on Mapping. Come on by Tuesday night as I discuss the state of Mapping with Google, Yahoo!, Microsoft and Ask. It’ll be great to meet you.

I used to work on Live Search where I was one of the organizers of the Search Champs program among other things. I came over to MS with the acquisition of MongoMusic (which became MSN Music). Previous to my forays on the Internet I worked in the Supply Chain Management industry.

I live in Seattle and when I’m not building cars for Burning man or filming Angel parodies, I hike and devilstick.

    Hi Brady,
    Good to see your safe arrival, the Burning Man stuff looks cool – as for the devilsticks – now I know why you had red hair on V2 – got too close to the flames :-)
    take it easy

    Yay Brady! I’m really happy you’re here (although I appreciated all you did for the Search Champs). Given what I know of both you and the O’Reilly gang, this seems like a happy match.

    Nice move Brady – congrats. Buzz mentioned to me the other day that you were joining O’Reilly. Smart move on their part and a big loss for the Live Search team IMO. The Search Champs events were always a blast and you were a big reason why.

    Do great things and keep having fun.

    Brady, welcome to your new home. I am really looking forward to what you will do here (I loved what you did with Search Champs) and can only imagine what will bubble up here.
