The reason for the recent lack of blogs has been my work on our two new Microsoft partner blogs. I will be blogging here still, but check these two blogs out as well . . .
The first is our new general purpose ISV blog - http://blogs.msdn.com/ukisvdev/ - written by our team, with lots of ISV related material, so I hope if you are a Microsoft partner, you find it of use.
The second is our new Fasttraack ISV site - http://blogs.msdn.com/fasttrackreview/ - we are running free half day reviews for ISV to help them develop and grow their solutions on the Microsoft platform. More information and details to apply are on the site. You can see the first write up, which is the mechanism we use to share the experience for other partners, at http://blogs.msdn.com/fasttrackreview/archive/2008/05/19/zylog-fieldpower-fasttrack-review-write-up.aspx, where we try to share how our technology stack can help ISVs in their product development cycle and plans.
