  • Blog Post: MSDN Information Architecture

    Please welcome Paula Land to the land-o-blogs! Paula is MSDN's Information Architect, and is going to be posing you some interesting questions, including what you think of the sneak preview of the new MSDN Library Table of Contents. You'll have to go to her blog find the sneak preview ;-)
  • Blog Post: Meet Peter Stern, designer extraordinaire at MSDN

    Peter Stern is a designer at MSDN. Aside from being a great User Interface and User Experience designer, I love talking to Peter... his interests are many (surfing is my most recent PS discovery) and varied, and he's always giving me ideas. Just talking to him about art (the very wide definition of art...
  • Blog Post: Treo 600 Stops Vibrating - Can this FAQ answer be for real?

    While cruising the new FAQ at TreoCentral, I noticed a seemingly bizarre answer to the question “ My Treo 600's vibrate feature stopped working! Is there anything I can do? “ Apparently (and I haven't verified this, as my vibrate feature is working just fine, thank you very much) you have...
  • Blog Post: Check out MSDN!

    ~Whew~ that was fun! Everyone at MSDN has been working like crazy, and last night, concurrent with the announcement of VS2005 Express Beta in Amsterdam, we launched the Product Feedback Center , the new personalized Visual Studio Developer Center , online and CodeWise search integration into Visual Studio...
  • Blog Post: Microsoft Cafeteria Trivia

    If you get to work early (before 8, generally) the cafeterias (at least 4 and 36) have GREAT fresh fruit -- yummy ripe strawberries and blueberries, and fresh cut/sectioned pink grapefruit and pineapple. If you get to work later, your choice is limited to the usual assortment of melon and canned mandarin...
  • Blog Post: Tablet PC in Bed

    I don't know why it's Tablet PC day, it just is. I just popped over to Channel9, and there, featured prominently in the front page, was the headline “ The Tablet PC has changed my life (in bed) ”. (See what I mean? Tablet PC day.) The intro cracked me up: “It's not often that...
  • Blog Post: Celebration!

    Well, I was going to post this photo and point to Betsy's blog post about the celebration, but it turns out it isn't there. She had a busy weekend, I know, so I'm sure she'll be telling us all about it soon. In the meantime, this is Betsy and Kevin (from the MSCom Communities team) celebrating on Friday...
  • Blog Post: Ducks looking for work?

    Today on the way back from lunch, I had to do a double take as I walked by the building 4 lobby because there were ducks standing at the door, waiting to get in. “There are ducks at the door,” I said to the receptionist, thinking she must have noticed me walking backwards, and would want...
  • Blog Post: NPR: They got me!

    I had to run an errand this afternoon, and as I pulled out of the parking lot, a news story came on NPR talking about a US Post Office announcement about mobile zip codes. Modeled on the rulings that allowed people to take their phone numbers with them, the Assistant Postmaster General was quoted from...
  • Blog Post: A note for MVPs

    MSDN will have a booth at the product fair that's happening during MVP Summit registration on Sunday evening -- I'll be there for most of the time, and I hope you'll stop by to say hello if we've already met, or introduce yourself if we haven't. If you miss me on Sunday, I've also wrangled an invite...
  • Blog Post: New computer on the way

    New computer on the way, woo hoo! That's the good news. Unfortunately, it's coming in pieces. My friend Curtis has agreed to put it together, but I'm guessing (based on past experience) that means that he sits there and tells me what to do. Aside: Curtis is suffering from some delusion that my having...
  • Blog Post: Cruising my referrals: Pictures of Chris Anderson

    When I have time I sometimes cruise my referrals for this blog. This morning when I looked (as I'm waiting for my son to finish getting ready for school), one of the more recent referrals was a search for pics+of+chris+anderson. Strange, I thought, I mean Chris Anderson is cute and all, but... So of...
  • Blog Post: Do as I say, not as I do

    Julie cracks me up... ...But then he asked me about my backup habits. This is like when the dental hygienist asks if you've been flossing regularly. Skip to after that conversation. We have a deal. He is going to call me in two weeks. If I am not backing up regularly ( DAILY as I can't really afford...
  • Blog Post: MSN Ads

    Some people love the MSN Butterfly ads and some people hate them -- to each their own. If you're in the "love 'em" camp, though, only4gurus.com has them available for download .
  • Blog Post: This is broken!

    Sean posts about thisisbroken.com . This site is one of the outlets for Mark Hurst , and I totally agree with Sean that it's important to understand what's broken. The posts are also really funny! Mark's main website is www.goodexperience.com , and he also has a newsletter that is generally a wealth...
  • Blog Post: Now *this* is a snowglobe!

    Shawn pointed to this site , and he's right, the screams are the best! ;-)
  • Blog Post: Something missing, can't Go

    For reasons that escape me, the error message "Something missing, can't Go" popped into my mind this evening. Probably something about nostalgia and old age. In any case, though, let's see just how small the world really is... there's a prize for the first person who can tell me what the...
  • Blog Post: Liberating Chris

    Scoble suggests, in the comments to this post , that we liberate the cardboard Chris (cC).  I'm totally game, should be easy to nip right in during dinner or late night snack one night this week -- I'm guessing there will be some late nights.  You know, though, I wonder if should join us...
  • Blog Post: Lifesize Chris

    Okay, this is too funny.... A ChrisAn post that links to a picture of ChrisAn practicing for PDC in Don Box's office, and you can easily see a life-sized stand-up of Chris Sells.  And Don talking about the impact that the cardboard Chris has on his team.  At MSDN we really could...
  • Blog Post: Sleeping on it

    Sometimes sleeping on it makes all the difference in the world.  In a few short days it will be in my hot little hands. I hate the arms length thing between Handspring and the service providers, though: By proceeding with purchase, you agree that Handspring shall not be responsible for...
  • Blog Post: Rock, paper, scissors

    Wow .  Who knew?  (Well besides John Dowdell , that is!)
