Developer Christopher Ross on his decision to develop his app, FotoJelly, for Windows Phone: “I wonder daily if it was the right decision”

It’s been a busy week here at GeekWire. We launched our new annual membership program and unveiled Tableau CEO Christian Chabot as the speaker for our February 13th Meetup.

We also had plenty to cover on the editorial front — from new apps to the Windows Azure accelerator Demo Day to a slate of startups that emerged from The University of Washington. For those who missed out on the action, here’s a look at the most popular posts during the past week. As you’ll see below, Windows Phone was the hot topic. Enjoy!
