“Redmond’s scanning the Net” is the chilling title of this no-so-chilling tale of Microsoft Research’s studies of community activity on the Internet. Interesting reading.

Should I be worried?

The True Costs of Software

Alan MacCormack: The True Costs of Software. A good essay and survey of published documents in the field showing that TCO is not a simple measurement like “miles per gallon,” and that the context of computer use can have a major effect.

EricR has a blog!

EricR has a blog! Imagine that!  I ran across a reference to Eric Rudder’s blog on Chris Sells blog on his “Senior VP meeting” after a month at Microsoft here: Chris Sells: “Imagine a company run as a strict meritocracy that’s one of the most important and profitable in it’s industry.” ( via Scripting News). It seems that Eric, while not a daily blogger, is using Chris Anderson’s BlogX tool

So far, one blog entry doth not make a log. Keep trying, Eric!
