I’ve decided to write my first application. This is a MAJOR step for me as I have always relied on seasoned developers to write stuff for me. Now it’s time for me to be self-sufficient.
This application will deal with the migration of SPS2003 to MOSS 2007.
I will be attending and there is a slight chance I may be speaking.
I bought a Dash. It’s AWESOME. Its what a Blackberry wants to be when it grows up. "Q" killa, it is.
I also bought a black Bluetooth earpiece and call it "The Black Beauty". Once you put this phone in your hands, the energy flows out of the phone and into your hand compelling you to instantly and violently crave having one.

With the release of a ton of innovative products such as Office 12, Exchange 12, and Vista–Microsoft has decided to sit on a product rather than release it. Knowledge Network, previously an add-on component to Microsoft Office SharePoint Server, will not be released as a full blown supported product or even as an add-on product; but as a "Technical Preview".
According to the KN Team: "As a Technical Preview, KN will still be available to customers as a web download at no additional cost and will include documentation and community support. However, Technical Previews are not supported or covered by standard product support services or warranties. "
The key is "Community Support". In other words, Microsoft won’t help you if you have issues.
Another blogger by the name of MikeG (a MS guy) thinks that this will open the door for IBM’s project named "Ventura". We shall see if Big Blue decides to integrate with SharePoint. Doesn’t seem likely, this is just what Domino needs.
My article in REDMOND magazine came out yesterday.
The graphics are a little….weird.
I’m currenly doing a MOSS project at Wells Fargo. It’s HUGE.
I’m writing an article for Redmond Magazine about deploying SharePoint Portal Server 2003 in a large environment. When I worked for NWNA, I worked on a team that was tasked with deploying SPS 2003 throughout the company. So the magazine asked me to write about it. It’s my first full feature article for a magazine.
This could possibly be the best add-on feature to MOSS 2007. I’ll be writing about it in the forthcoming book from Microsoft Press, so stayed tuned!
