Tod Nielsen named CEO of Borland

I used to work for Tod when I was an evangelist in the Developer Relations Group (DRG) at Microsoft. Tod was the face and voice of Microsoft to the developer community during the time when Microsoft seemingly didn’t care about “community” during the mid-to-late 90s.

Tod was most well known for his funny top 10 talks at developer conferences like PDC. Tod’s a smart guy and gets “developers” – a definite kudos for Borland.
