Fucking this. I mean, I didn't know he went by "e," and I don't know to what extent his skills contributed to the badassery of gaming networking that is XBL, but... WHY THE HELL NOT NINTENDO?!!?!!! >:(

He was Director of Architecture and Operations Manager for XBL since day one. He was quite crucial to its success (well, him and Bungie, who laid a lot of the foundation work for the Xbox 360 incarnation of Xbox Live, via Halo 2). Whatever he's doing (according to his LinkedIn his official position is "VP of Technology"), it's a huge get for TPC.

Also, he goes by 'e' as that was his Gamertag on XBL and is short for his name. It was also the first Gamertag ever made, way back during the earliest of testing.

Edit: You know what? I wonder if he's going to be involved with the network technology in Pokémon Go. As they eventually add more and more advanced social/player-to-player functionality he would be extremely helpful to have around. Obviously as a VP role he'd being doing more than that too, but I wouldn't be surprised if that was part of the reason they snatched him up.
