‘The Developer Evangelism Contact within Microsoft for Windows Sharepoint Services and Sharepoint Portal Server’, as Mike Fitzmaurice calls himself, has started a blog to get in toutch with the world of blogging. Goal is to get feedback from the community about Sharepoint and the way Microsoft is communicating to Sharepoint developers.
I replied, and suffered for it almost immediately. I pointed out that my comments to Patrick were pre-SmartPart, and that what Jan Tielens did was to take all the work I’d mentioned would be required and encapsuate it away so no one else would have to do it. I then offered an endorsement, and forgot that humor doesn’t translate well to text without careful attention. It came off as arrogant and dismissive, and for that I apologize.
Good thing Mike! Hope to hear lots of you!
