2004: Year of the Blog


 
BLOG noun [short for Weblog] (1999) : a Web site that contains an online personal journal with reflections, comments, and often hyperlinks provided by the writer
 
Merriam-Webster definition
 
Merriam-Webster just announced that the word BLOG was the most looked up term on its website. Considering that the current estimates of the number of blogs exceeds 4.8 million, thats not surprising. I personally rely on RSS feeds for managing information overload and subscribe to several key feeds for internal information. I also found Addy Santo’s BlogWave an excellent utility to create an RSS feed  from Sharepoint folders.

    Yep, I wrote BlogWave in VS.NET 2003 using a few free libaries. Drop me a comment on my blog if you want additional information, or just look at the "About" window in BlogWave for a list of libraries used.
