Successful blogs, like successful journalists, are usually associated with a particular beat. For example, Mary-Jo Foley has worked the Microsoft beat for a couple of decades. Four years ago, I started this blog to write a bit about Team System. When this blog had its highest throughput, I was working the Team System beat nearly full time while also doing my day job. Since then, my role at Microsoft has changed a couple of times and I find myself further from the Team System Fountain of Truth. I had hoped that my new roles would lead me to more opportunities to cover Visual Studio to the same level I covered Team System, but that’s too broad for me and Soma hits all the highlights. Since I don’t feel like I have a beat to cover, or at least cover well, I’m thinking it’s time to stop posting to this blog. No guarantee I will, but if I do, thanks for reading!
