Tim Sneath is the group manager for the Silverlight and WPF technical evangelism team, based out of Microsoft’s corporate headquarters in Redmond, WA. His mission is to see developers create stunning applications built on the Microsoft platform, and to persuade his mother that computers aren’t out to get her. Amongst other strange obsessions, Tim collects vintage releases of Windows, and has a near-complete set of shrink-wrapped copies that date back to the late 80s, as well as a “museum” of Virtual PC images from Windows 1.0 to the present. Tim spent the first thirty years of his life in the UK, and his occasional attempts to speak English with an American accent for ease of comprehension cause much hilarity amongst his colleagues. His popular blog covers client platform technologies, and can be found at http://blogs.msdn.com/tims.
