No transcript of a speech by Kirill Tatarinov, given at last week’s Worldwide Partner Conference, has been posted on Microsoft’s Web site. One rationale offered was the talks given by executives at Tatarinov’s level—he’s the head of Microsoft Business Solutions—weren’t posted.  My memory was that he was one of three keynotes shown on the WPC Web page when I first looked—and, given Microsoft’s lavish use of the word, keynote—it didn’t seem like there would be such a shortage of space for transcripts. Moreover, nobody has been able to come up with a transcript of Tatarinov's speech  in the last week.

It’s a sign of the change from the years in which Doug Burgum headed MBS. Even when Burgum started concentrating more on software and less on historical lessons, his speeches were made available.
