  • Blog Post: Social graph analytics for the *benefit* of users

    Angus Logan, a Product Manager on the Live Services team, came out with an interesting post recently on address book portability between social sites/services.  The thrust of his argument is that the various address book repositories in the world (Facebook, LinkedIn, Windows Live, and others) have...
  • Blog Post: When information is not scarce, what does it mean to know?

    Another very interesting video here from the folks at Kansas State University that did the Academia 2.0 post and initial response . (BTW, the first video on the linked page IS the Academia 2.0 video, so be sure scroll down to the second video.) Similar to the first video, this additional one raises huge...
  • Blog Post: Windows Live: where it's at, where it's going

    LiveSide just posted a podcast interview with Angus Logan . You can also get to it from Angus' own blog , which is worth the trip in any case. Angus is the Senior Technical Product Manager for Windows Live Platform and the main go-to guy for Windows Live Platform technical questions. From the LiveSide...
  • Blog Post: » The next big thing: User-contributed metadata ... and More...

    Kind of a "roundup" post. First, this user-contributed metadata business. More the evolution of loyalty cards than of user-contributed media online, I think. . The next big thing: User-contributed metadata | Between the Lines | ZDNet.com . Will we see it go the other way -- with professionally...
  • Blog Post: Building brand and transcending walled gardens

    Ok - so I've been posting about Popfly a lot lately. Why am I so excited about Popfly? It's simple, actually. Popfly is more than a mashup maker. And it's more than a Mashout tool (for sharing mashups) -- though it is that, too. What makes Popfly so exciting is the business scenarios. I promised in one...
  • Blog Post: How to make Facebook app with Popfly

    Tom Foremski has a post on ZDNet that talks about how easy it is to make a Facebook app with Popfly .  It's a good post in it's own right, but I especially like that he also includes two videos with Dan Fernandez (a Product Manager on the team building Popfly) that lets you see first hand how easy...

  • Blog Post: 2-D Barcodes: Siren Song or Beach Party?

    Jon Box posted some about 2D barcodes a couple weeks back. In that post he threw down the gauntlet, challenging me to identify a set of business scenarios -- beyond the great examples he already listed -- that could leverage this technology to create value. No easy task, this. He even lobbed up MMS for...
  • Blog Post: Want more info on Popfly?

    I recently got into the Popfly alpha, and have been playing around with it off and on for the last week or two. Here's a screenshot of a simple, compact News Reader that pulls in RSS feeds from the blogs of the members of the Microsoft's DPE team that covers Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, and Tennessee. I...
  • Blog Post: Popfly - new Silverlight mash-up maker - is now alpha!

    Popfly is a new tool from Microsoft for people who have great some ideas about how to use technology, but might lack the software development skills to realize them. Basically, it's a fun and easy way to build and share mash-ups, gadgets and Web pages using pre-built “Blocks” that connect to online services...
