    The Men of MSDN

    • 1 Comments

     Sean posted this one today. Be sure to click the link to see the comic. :) 

    Sean Gephardt's Microsoft Developer Network ( MSDN ) Blog

    This comic from our internal company news letter, MicroNews, really struck home this morning, and we aren't really sure who leaked the concept, but it has possibly accelerated the project. I think maybe someone overheard one of our dev team lunchtime discussions....

    Special Thanks to Hans Bjordahl

    Security Webcast Monday

    • 1 Comments

    There's an MSDN Security Webast coming up on Monday at 1:00 PM (PST) that sounds really good. Here's a link to the registration page and a bit of information:

    MSDN Webcast: Computer Crime and Security  
    The typical misconception is that a hardware firewall will prevent a security breach.  In fact, the majority of today's IT security breaches occur through a web application.  In this webcast we will discuss the most pervasive methods that hackers use to penetrate systems, where these attacks originate from, how they are accomplished and the financial impact of these breaches.

    Mike Howard on Channel9

    • 3 Comments

    I saw on Scoble that they did some interviews with Mike Howard for Channel9. This is absolutely great information for developers doing and planning security reviews. (Update: They've got 3 videos.)

    Michael Howard - When does threat modeling come into play?
    Michael Howard, program manager on Microsoft's security team, discusses how the Internet Explorer team used threat modeling to reduce the attack surface of its software.

    Michael Howard - What if we had an unattackable system?
    What if Michael Howard's job became obsolete? After all, he's the top security official at Microsoft. What would the bad guys do if the system itself became unattackable?

    Michael Howard - What isn't being taught well enough in college?
    Michael Howard, Microsoft's top security official, notes that many college graduates need to get remedial security training.

    Testing Blog Posting Tools

    • 6 Comments

    So I’m trying out a number of different blog posting tools. I was using W.Bloggar, which works well, but it does a few strange things that make posting more difficult than it probably needs to be for me. I’ve done a few posts with BlogJet, which will be quite awesome when it’s finished. And now I’m testing the .Text plug-in for NewsGator. It’s take a while to convert me, but I have to say that all the NewsGator services and now the NewsGator for Outlook product really have me hooked. I think I might be home with this one.

    Tablet PC on 24

    • 3 Comments

    I don't get to watch 24 very often, but tonight I noticed that one of the agents was using a Motorola Smartphone. A couple of minutes later she was using a Tablet PC to flip through suspect photos. Very cool. Now I'm looking for a SPOT watch.

    MVP Summit

    • 1 Comments
    I was able to meet with a number of Microsoft MVPs today at the MVP Summit. The enthusiasm that these people have for the technology they use and help others with is really energizing. Some of the best content we're publishing on MSDN is coming from MVPs and after our discussions today, I expect that we'll have even more of that great content coming in the future.

    Channel9 Launched

    • 1 Comments

    Robert's project, Channel9 launched today. I'm really enjoying the RSS feed for the site. Congrats to all those who put this together.

    Channel9 Launches
    There's a Wiki in there. There's a weblog in there. There's a streaming video in there. There's a social computing paradigm in there. Oh, and there's RSS 2.0 streams on EVERYTHING. Steve Gillmor, did you wanna know whether Microsoft gets RSS? Check it out! Subscribe to it. We'll be pushing down more videos soon (Translation: within a day or two, and we'll try to stay on pace to push down new stuff every day or two after that -- if you haven't yet tried an RSS news aggregator, this is your chance).
