No, I’m not dating Martha Stewart

Apparently Martha Stewart was on the Howard Stern show and revealed she was dating an ex-Microsoft executive who invented Word and Excel. That would be my former boss and mentor, Charles Simonyi. I have no problem calling Charles the inventor of Microsoft Word – all I did was write the code. Charles had the brilliance to hire me.

I have never met Martha.
