Nancy blogs FoxPro and .NET

I've known Nancy Folsom for years, dating back to the 1990s when we both hung out in Fawcette's Off.Ramp a lot. I'm glad to see her blogging, and a geeky code blog to boot! She blogs about FoxPro, .NET, and a few other geeky topics.

Oh, and my wife Maryam links to her and Stan Mackey, our real estate agent, who just started a blog too. Oh, and Kim Sacha. She's studying computational genetics and blogging about her journey. Her husband is a developer at Microsoft (works on the ultra-cool Max team).

Good to see some nice new blogs. How does Maryam find them? She has been building a network of friends in Seattle — she has a movie club where she kicks me out of the house and has her friends over. Funny that last time they didn't even watch a movie!

  1. Man, you have had a month. They didn’t even watch a movie? I’m just saying. Wow, I hate to be the one to break this down, but…

  3. I did like Kim Sacha’s topics for the simple reason that I learned something from it.
    I tend to disagree with you regarding women and blogging. You might be right that more guys blog on geeky and tech topics but I read regularly a few women bloggers on other topics. Let me name a few, Andrea Learned (Learned on Women, Marketing to Women) in Vermont, Bea of ‘La tartine gourmande’ a fellow french ‘expat’ (Boston based)who offers us very appetizing pictures, Patricia Kitchen of ‘Newsday’ covers the world of work.
    Maybe this is because I look for people covering a variety of topics that I found some of them.
    There is quite a bit of writing on a variety of topics by women at ‘Imagining Ourselves’.

    I am attending a Typepad session Thursday in New York on Business and Blogging. I will see what the female/ male ratio is.

    Take care

  5. I clicked on your ‘ultra-cool Max team’ link to find out what Max was about and found this:

    “What is Max?
    Microsoft® Codename Max is your opportunity to try a new, exciting and constantly evolving experience from Microsoft. Today Max lets you make beautiful photo slideshows to share with your family and friends. And it recently began showing you the latest news updates from around the world. What will Max do next? Stay tuned!”

    Huh? It’s an evolving experience that lets me make slideshows and read the latest news updates from around the world? Is it also a floor polish?

    Focus the product and the message!

  7. On the WinHECish, Vista Beta 2 (5384) and beta 2 of Longhorn Server (5384) and Beta 2 of Office 2007 days, (and Commerce Server RC and the new Windows Rally branding) and you are wonking on about FoxPro and Flash. I could out blog you in things Microsoft without even lifting a finger (assuming I’d ever blog, which I won’t).

    PS – Hey, what about this rumor about Microsofties losing Admin Rights? I doubt will happen as pretty much impossible to run as non-privileged user, as tons and tons of programs that require admin rights to run, no not just intall, to RUN.

  9. PSS – Max still around? Umm why? Heck, just buy out Acdsee or something. More bloatware graphics apps from Microsoft, like the monstrosity of that cutesy Digital Image Suite, please stop trying to outdo Adobe or Corel, it ain’t working.

  11. Christopher: if you think you could do a better job blogging, why don’t you do one (and a real one with your name, about real topics, not parodies of others)?
