I worked with Steve for a couple of years in MSN, on an incubation project involving highly-scalingservices, lots of rapidly-updating data and a tricky-to-get-right client-side experience. Steve owned the design& implementation of the client pieces and wrote a lot of high-quality code, was great at debugging problemsin a multi-threaded environment, and was a great partner in the design of the end-to-end system. Bonus pointsfor being funny and a great guy to work with and socialize with!
