Judging from this description of a BOF session at the Microsoft Professional Developers Conference next month, there’s not much doubt that Gates and Co.’s entry into Web logging is nigh:
“By now, you’re probably familiar with weblogging to some extent. What you may not have known is the extent that blogging is used inside Microsoft. In this BOF session, the heavyweights of the blogosphere will chair a discussion on where blogging is at and where it’s headed. Where does .NET fit into all this? Can we expect any blogging services from MSN? What about blogging with the newest version of Sharepoint? Come join the fun and find out. We’ll also be talking about the role of RSS and/or Atom, aggregators, the integration of weblogging gesture with other software, and much more! Park your butt and bring your ideas… It’s guaranteed to be intense, so make sure you’re there!”
