OSCON report- "I keep hearing about Drupal in every talk" - Microsoft employee

This year we had about a dozen members of the Drupal community show up to help run the Drupal booth at OSCON. We frequently needed at least 4 people at the booth to answer all the questions and still had people waiting to learn more. A large part of our visitors were already Drupal users and they were just coming by the booth to say "hi!". They wanted to let us know how many sites they were running or wanted to know how add a new feature or meet some new business requirement. Where we had time, we were able to answer their questions.

Who am I? Why am I here?

I'm finishing up my fourth day at Acquia, and in thinking about how to introduce myself, one phrase immediately jumped to mind: "Who am I? Why am I here?"
