[WindowsLive:Writer] So That's Where Microsoft Hid JJ (Allaire)!
by M. David Peterson
Blogger is going to force everyone's hand, including ours, when they move exclusively to APP... sometime soon. Looking forward to that day as everyone's metaweblog implementations have their own quirks.
I must admit that it does add an ironic twist to hear someone from Microsoft make the all too famous,
"force everyone's hand ... when they ..."
comment, but from the defensive, instead of offensive point of view. Just goes to show that no matter who you are, and how much of any given market you might own, you can't sit still in this industry and expect such a "strategy" to work. Thats not to suggest that I believe MSFT has been sitting still, and instead that no matter who you are, or where you are from, simple ideas can, quite literally, become the next "big thing" overnight.
Who knows, maybe your idea, whoever you are, and whatever that might be, will be in place of "Blogger" the next time someone from 'GigantoCorp' (whichever GigantoCorp that might be) speaks these same words.
Thanks for the info, Joe!
Those of you who have been around the Web since right around day one or so will understand what I mean when I state: HomeSite ROCKS!!! (a statement often made in WebDev circles circa 1995)
For the record, HomeSite still ROCKS!!!, but thats beside the point.
So, what is the point?
I'm gettin' there, snappy, now go take another
Ritalin Adderalland go sit in the corner until it takes hold!
Okay, for those of you still with me,

Yes, it's odd that there's no APP support in their dedicated blogging client, but there is in the Word 2007 beta:
