Scott Johnson took a chance of making his open-source-loving friends mad by posting some advice for Microsoft on his blog.
I did a search for “Chitika” earlier today. I blindly copied the URL it pointed to. And I see that that actually made someone some more money. I fixed the link, but this is an interesting problem. Thanks to Darren for pointing it out.
I am down in Silicon Valley all week. I’m looking to meet with folks who are doing something interesting with software. Are you? Wanna meet?
I’ll be working at Microsoft’s cafeteria. Hey, it has Wifi and a Starbucks (and I know where all the power outlets are). What else do you need?
Nice to see that MSN Spaces now supports the MetaWeblogAPI, thanks to Dare Obasanjo for posting that on his blog. Why is that a big deal? Because now developers can build things that can write to MSN Spaces. I’ll have to see if Maryam can use Flock with her MSN Spaces-based blog, for instance.
Maryam and I are really getting excited. On November 23 we’re going to Wales for Thanksgiving with her brother. Then over to Cork (more info on the conference I’m speaking at here), Ireland. Then to Dublin, where I’m talking to a .NET User Group. Then to Paris for Les Blogs 2.0. Then to Brussels to meet with another user group. Then back to London for a geek dinner with Hugh Macleod and more than 100 others and I’m going to try to get to the Global Voices 2005 London Summit on the 10th too. There’s a bunch of other things I’ll be doing in between these events too. Doing some Channel 9 videos, and getting around to meet many of Microsoft’s employees.
Les Blogs is looking like a great conference. I’ve never been to Paris. It’s one of the things I’ve always wanted to do. I hope to meet you at one of these events! Oh, and it’s looking like I’ll get to Switzerland in February, and India next summer. Maryam wanted to take me to Iran this trip, but I couldn’t justify taking so much time away from the office.
Sometimes I just write on my blog for one person to read. And that person this post is the one who decides on college interns. Well, and to show Stefan that I saw his blog where he says he hopes to be accepted as an intern at Microsoft.
How did I see Stefan’s blog? Feedster.com. If you write the word “Microsoft” on your blog, I’ll see it.
