I have been using Sharepoint for a number of years and it is a wonderful piece of software for storing and sharing documents and lists. I am an avid user of shrepoint as it has server me well. However it is currently limited to authenticated users. The outside world has been using web logs and I am beginning to see the expand my horizons on sharing information externally. Sharepoint still works well for me internally, thank you.
I will start with a few thought on Microsoft's interests and efforts in Academia and share some of the resources that may be of interest to students and faculty.
