  • Blog Post: Live Mesh, the portable code repository.

    The Environment. I’ve got three machines that I’ve allocated to role based use, as typically given the nature of my role here at Microsoft I'm all to often loading/unloading software far to much (I dogfood a lot of our internal products). I not only dogfood, but I constantly roam the hallways of Redmond...
  • Blog Post: I expect to now see virtual mapping in all real estate websites, otherwise you lost my business.

    I'm obviously not just thinking of buying a property in the US but I'm also selling property in Australia. In doing this, I've scoured all the websites I can find, that carry out listings in both regions. The one thing that really has stuck with me are the real estate sites that don't make use of mapping...
  • Blog Post: WalkScore, very useful for a international house hunter.

    I'm currently browsing the interweb, checking out houses to either buy or lease in the Seattle area. I came across this site via colleague and I must say, it's quite a great concept and technically well executed. WalkScore.com simply rates the walking distance on a given location and lets you know what...
  • Blog Post: What if you could combine RIA with tomorrows multi touch innovation

    I was mucking about in YouTube today (smacks for me and not doing work) and I came across a project being built at MIT. This project allows folks to draw a physics based diagram which then comes to life on what appears to be a homemade (MIT style) "Smart Board". Watch the YouTube video below...
  • Blog Post: LiveNet 0.2 Released..

    I stumbled upon this blog entry over at spaces.live.com, where Scott Lovegrove (MVP) has put together a pretty sweet little application. This application enables you to view your uploaded Silverlight Live Streaming apps in a simplified way. It's something we should have done in a web based format, and...
  • Blog Post: Feel like abusing or praising me direct?

    This month I dub thee "Live.com" month, as clearly there is a lot of new toys coming out around this space (keep an eye on it and some other things on the horizon). One thing you'll now note about my blog is the fact that you can IM me direct should you have a burning desire - this can be done...
  • Blog Post: Angus Logan has been uploaded to the mothership.

    Angus Logan ( aka Oz Sharepoint Demi-God ) has been targeted for upgrades, and thus has been uploaded to Redmond. Geeky words aside, Angus has been I guess promoted , to becoming the new Technical Product Manager for Windows Live Platform Team . This is good news for Microsoft, as Angus is quite passionate...
  • Blog Post: MIX07 - Day 1 - Keynote notes.

    Expression Studio was just announced as being public today by Ray Ozzie. Silverlight story was told, and overall the kids are happy so far (few cheers). Windows Live Platform Group are going to make some announcements tomorrow as well. Silverlight + Photosynth Zoom capabilities are also now in the room...
  • Blog Post: Microsoft AIRLIFT 07 (Live.com Debrief)

    I can't say much about much about what took place in an internal debrief around Live.com and Spaces.com . I have to watch my wording here as I could get into trouble for letting things slip, suffice to say I can talk about what's public today. Live.com exists, it's got a lot of already established goodness...
  • Blog Post: I went to an Internal Microsoft mashup tonight.

    As some would know, I'm currently in Seattle, Microsoft HQ getting to know some of the various product folks and the upcoming offerings post MIX07. At any rate, tonight Michael and I went to see some Microsoftonians put together some Web 2.0 mashups. My initial reaction at first was uncertainty, in that...
