Hi! My name is Rob Conery and I work at Microsoft. I am the Creator of SubSonic and was the Chief Architect of the Commerce Starter Kit (a free, Open Source eCommerce platform for .NET). I live in Kauai, HI with my family, and when my clients aren't looking, I sometimes write things on my blog (giving away secrets of incalculable value).
