Alan Barber is pissed at Six Apart's new pricing for Moveable Type. Looking through my feeds Alan's not the only one who's mad.
Sean Alexander is back blogging and tells us how to develop applications for the Windows Media Center.
Windows Media Center is sorta like what you get when you combine a Tivo with a PC.
For instance, check out Greg Reinacker's NewsGator for Windows Media Center (on Sean's blog).
Dare Obasanjo: why Microsoft isn't supporting the W3C's XSLT 2.0 or XPath 2.0 in the next version of the .NET framework.
I don't know how to react to this, either for me personally, or how Microsoft should react.
Let me put my marketing hat on. "Microsoft has several syndication projects underway, and some, like Channel9 are already public. We are focused on making our customers' lives better through syndication technologies and will watch all syndication technology efforts to see which ones will best serve our customers."
Translation: I have no f***ing clue what this will mean at the end of the day.
I do wonder, however, why the Johnny-come-lately approach? Syndication formats have been hot for years. Why didn't the W3C get involved earlier? And, I think it's strange that the W3C would get involved without even an acknowledgement that there's another syndication format out there.
That other format is used by Microsoft. By the president. By the BBC. By Reuters. By the New York Times. By Disney. By me and many thousands, if not millions of sites.
Why wouldn't the W3C send a letter begging for the other syndication format as well?
Anyway, since I don't have a clue about how to answer this development, I'd like to turn the microphone over to you. How should Microsoft react to this?
The engadget weblog has tons of coverage from the E3 show that's going on now.
On Friday Channel9 will be interviewing Anders Hejlsberg, the guy behind C#, Delphi, and Turbopascal. What should we ask him?

"What’s so special about a Tablet PC? You mean other than how cool we look when we turn our convertible’s screen around in public? Quite a lot, actually. In fact, the Tablet OS is more versatile than you might imagine."
Marc Orchant: This Toshiba Tablet PC's screen is amazing!
Larry O'Brien, you've gone too far. You pushed ink down through your RSS feed directly into my NewsGator. That's the first time I've seen that done and I'm not sure I like it.
