Hiking for the stout hearted
It's amazing how small our world can be sometimes. I just found this video from a tweet by ScottHa, who was referring to a blog post by Roy Osherove. The views are absolutely incredible (check out the view at about 00:40 and then again at 2:55), but there is no way I would ever do a hiking trip like this. Just watching this makes me feel afraid of heights (especially at 4:46), and I'm not ......

Birds of a Feather session - "Code Style and Standards"
I am moderating a reprise of my BOF session at last year's Tech·Ed. This one is simply called "Code Style and Standards", and is BOF864. It's currently scheduled for Wednesday, June 4 from 7:45 PM - 8:45 PM. Hopefully some of the people who attended last year's session will be at this one but I hope there are a lot of new faces as well. Technorati Tags: TechEd 2008, BOF ......

Tech·Ed 2008 Schedule Builder and Internet Calendar Subscriptions
Last year when the Tech·Ed 2007 Schedule Builder came out, I complained about how cumbersome it was to use. The idea of having to pick a time period from a drop down list that contains 28 items and constantly having to scroll up and down to view the page navigation and the small calendar view down the side is very "old school" and does not make it easy to use. As a result, I took advantage of the fact that the sessions were published as an RSS feed and created a set of Internet Calendars for each ......

Reminder: April 2008 Tampa Bay IASA Meeting
Just a reminder that the Tampa Bay IASA February meeting is Thursday night (April 24th) starting at 6:30 PM. This is an open discussion meeting, so bring your architecture problems, and depending on how many people we have and how many problems we may split up into small groups or try to solve problems one at a time. Please be sure to register so we have an idea of how many pizzas to order, and remember that the outside doors lock and the elevators need a security key after 7:00 PM. Technorati Tags: ......

Book Review: Wikipedia: The Missing Manual
I have always been a big fan of the O'Reilly books, and the Missing Manual series is no exception. I recently had the opportunity to read Wikipedia: The Missing Manual by John Broughton. If you have ever thought about contributing to Wikipedia, or have done so in the past, this is the definitive book on how to contribute and become a successful Wikipedia editor. The book is broken down into 5 major sections which cover: Editing, Creating, and Maintaining Articles Collaborating with Other Editors ......

MVP Summit 2008
I just got back from attending my first MVP Summit and have to say the level of access we received to the product teams and other people within Microsoft was outstanding. Since this was my first Summit, I don't really have a frame of reference to know how it compares to previous years, but it did quickly become apparent to me that Microsoft really does listen to community as much as they are able. Obviously some groups and products are better able to do this than others, but that seems to be mostly ......
