About Me

“The Public Sector guy at . School governor, trekker, passionate about tech in edu. Also known for an awful taste in music & boring facts!” – Twitter Bio

Hello, my name is James!

Hi, I’m James Marshall and as well as being a rubbish lazy frustrated blogger, one-time podcast co-host, Diet Coke addict, lover of rubbish music and general geek, I am the UK public sector Windows guy at Microsoft. I spend my life eradicating old desktops (I’m looking at you, Windows XP…) and talking to anyone who’ll listen, and many who won’t, about Windows. I live and work in Reading and can usually be found wherever there is food.

It hasn’t always been this way, though. Before being “the Windows guy” I was “the Office 365 Education guy” extolling the virtues of Microsoft Live@edu and later Office 365 Education - it was a pretty cool part of the business to be in, but everybody needs to shake things up once in a while! Everything before that is a bit of a blur… rumour has it that I have been an IT technician and Network Manager in secondary schools. Some say I even worked in a cinema, but it’s all a bit fuzzy before 2010!

I’ll be honest. Sometimes I write a lot; often I write nothing at all. This blog is a bit of everything but it’s mainly focused on what I’m doing right now, so Windows. But don’t let that put you off.

Find me elsewhere

You can get a pretty good idea of what I’m like by taking a look at my other online haunts, drop me a tweet sometime?

Always comment and get in touch. It gives my ego a little boost, and let’s me know what you think of what I do. (Hopefully good things. Right?)

Thanks for stopping by,

James
