Microsoft launches blog

Yet another sign that blogs have moved mainsteam.

On Tuesday, Microsoft launched Channel 9, a blog designed to improve communication between inhouse engineers and external developers.

Bill Hill’s monologue on Homo Sapiens 1.0 is both entertaining and on target. But I’m not sure I’m ready for video blog entries.

Not surprisingly, the site does not look the same on MSIE and Mozilla. And I’m not sure why I had to approve three Microsoft downloads for Windows Media Player to provide only sound for Mozilla — but no downloads for MSIE and the video worked. Color me cynical, but the doctrine sounds suspicously like a knock-off of The Cluetrain Manifesto.
