  • Blog Post: Personal musings on shipping the first version of software.

    I find it amusing that even though Peter and I have been on very different schedules as of late (and thus haven't run into each other around the house much) his latest blog entry captured very much what I've been focused on as of late. I have been neglecting regular updates to my blog for the last month...
  • Blog Post: Just for the record, I don't work on Whitehorse.

    Scoble pointed at my last blog entry about the solid coverage Microsoft Watch gave Whitehorse and the System Definition Model .

Of course you can't answer this officially, but what do you think?" I've been struggling with this blog entry for a couple days now. I've...
  • Blog Post: Dynamic Systems Initiative vs. utility computing

    I decided to surf email for a bit and re-found the link to this article my lead (what some companies might call a "boss" or "manager") sent around to the team. I'm pretty sure my lead is addicted to CNET-news . But I suppose there are worse things to be addicted to. The article has a pretty decent...
