Not to get in the way of your groovething, but there are already bunches of MS bloggers. One of the differences is that they're actual employees, not temps. There must be a better aggregation link, but this is the first one in Google:
Yeah i want blogs into my winblows, and rss feeds and more fancy stuff, my screen isn't full enough yet !!
i'll just stick to win2k/xp ^_^
thanks for info ofcourse, and also to sad for the dude getting fired :/
