One week to go

October 8, 2007

Until Seattle Lunch 2.0 @ Widemile!! There are still some seats left too!! If you want to get in or decided you won’t be able to make it – Go update your status at

This event should be good, loads of free organic food! Two great speakers who have built web marketing companies on the shoulders of their expertise in the field. Of course the usual networking with the local tech community!! All the details on bus service, parking, etc are ath the Seattle Lunch 2.0 wiki.

Also next week is the Boston Web Community Dinner that my friend Len is putting together with EMC’s wallet!! Perhaps if it’s a hit we’ll get a Seattle Lunch 2.0 @ EMC (of course we’ll have to top the HDS lunch). I won’t be in town for the lunch, that is the hard part about working remotely and being a huge fan of spending my spare time with my family….. I tend to miss the corporate sponsored fun.

Of course EMC’s internal blog platform is taking off, I have been busy getting a queue of blog posts, discussion boards, etc lined up to start feeding the Email community I am running there. I promise I’ll start dual posting some of the content too…

Exchange Wiki Claimed

August 16, 2006

In case you missed, Ehlo’s post yesterday afternoon, The Exchange Team claimed the Exchange 2007 wiki so go check it out.

KC was also nice enough to share in my comments why the wiki looks oddly like some of the tech tips….Thanks Vivek for making that information available to everyone.

Powershell and the Exchange command set will be a difficult thing for a lot of people to wrap their heads around. This kind of early perscriptive guidance is good so please keep it up. I will try to do a little more here as I make it through Bruce’s Book

The Exchange 2007 Wiki

August 4, 2006

Vivek has pointed out a new Exchange 2007 Wiki. This is interesting as the content appears to be fairly robust which could mean there is some oversight by the product team folks or someone is posting all of the Tech Tips available to TAP customers. Either way, the information is good and I encourage you to go take a look and add something if you can. So far the articles that appear there are included in three categories

  • ” Powershell Scripts”
  • “Tips and Tricks”
  • “FAQs”

Inside those categories are some posts that we’ve seen on The Microsoft Exchange Team Blog (like “Speak SMTP Like a Native“) as well as some new content (like the script Vivek wrote or “General Assumptions on Restore-Mailbox Scenarios“).There is not much detail about who is running the site. It is an ( get’s you there as well). If it happens to be you that is running the site, I’d like to hear from you….

Useful idea to innovate RSS?

August 1, 2006

I saw a new RSS aggregator today on TechCrunch. This is a great idea for basic RSS reading, I personally use netvibes for my RSS reading pleasure, but this is worth a look.
If a company were to innovate with RSS though, this kind of correlation could be useful……

SEO with The Long Tail

July 28, 2006

I’m sure you have read by now about The Long Tail. It is all over the Blogosphere and more. Just about everyone has put up some sort of post about the theory of the long tail and it’s varying degrees of effectiveness. Some people agree the Long Tail works, some people think it does not. I wonder if the folks in Lebanon have heard about The Long Tail.

The basic theory of the Long Tail is on about every news site and blog. Although the intricacies of the affectiveness of the Long Tail for companies like Amazon is not the interest of this post. Those are great questions that are left for another time (not a friday night). A good friday question is, do they mean this by The Long Tail? The real question of this entry is……

How does The Long Tail affect Search Engine Optimization (SEO)?

A few key tag’s borrowed from Tecnorati, a few techniques borrowed from “how to optimize your blog“, and let’s see what happens…….
