    U2

    I went to a U2 concert last night. It was fantastic. Mind blowing. After all these years, U2 still attracts people of all different ages and backgrounds. It's even more admirable how Bono uses his popularity and songs to try and change the world; to talk...

    I spent this weekend with family and friends. This weekend marked the 1-year death anniversary of a close friend of mine. He was only 26 years old when he passed away in an unfortunate accident. At times like this, I always take some time away from work...

    The cost of software

    • 4 Comments
    As I suspected, some folks (based on feedback on the blog and email to me), made some points about cost - specifically, saying that SPS is too expensive. Above and beyond the points I made in my quite lengthy blog entry, fundamentally, you must ask yourself...

    Yes. You can deploy SharePoint solutions on the Extranet. I know several small and large customers who either have deployed a SharePoint solution externally or are in the process of doing so. A few months ago, we released a whitepaper relevant to partners...

    Election Talk

    The curse is reversed?

    It was the 9th inning. The Red Sox were up. I still remember that night. My friends were at my house and before the game was over, everyone was beginning to go home. The Red Sox had won the World Series... or had they? The Mets came back to win Game 6...

    Go Red Sox!

    • 5 Comments
    Ok. So I'm not a big baseball fan. But when it comes to the Red Sox against the Yankees, it's Red Sox all the way. Ortiz is the man. If the Sox can come back and win it from 3-0, that will be the sweetest victory ever. Go Sox!

    Using the word SharePoint

    • 7 Comments
    If you say SharePoint 2003, my respected colleague down the hall from me, Mike Fitzmaurice, won't be very happy. You see, SharePoint 2003 really doesn't make sense; it doesn't mean anything. Tell that to the authors of Microsoft SharePoint 2003 Unleashed...

    Integration with SharePoint Products and Technologies

    If you have existing investments, you should use them. From an infrastructure standpoint it's always ideal to have one uber repository, one uber solution that solves all your problems. However, that's not always practical. Migration of content takes time...
