We’ve got blogs…

A number of new C# bloggers have showed up this week, and I promised I’d give some “props” for all my “homies” before they entered the “blogsphere” and are“assimilated”.(”Word!”) (And yes, if you’re wondering why they all showed up at once, we decided to incentivize them (a word especially for Joe) to give blogging a…
