Rants, rambles, news and notes from another geek

Geek Notes 2004-02-14

So I spent a few hours on Friday bringing up a .TEXT based weblog site for my employer, Interlink Group. We have a number of really smart guys there and I’ve been trying to get them to blog for a while. Hopefully it’ll work out. At first glace, I really like the look of .TEXT. I particularly like the Articles bit. From looking at the code (and talking to The .NET Guy) it sounds like the templates aren’t separated from the code well enough, but I don’t know how much I really care about that. We’ll see… maybe I’ll convert from dasBlog to .TEXT one of these days.

  • Justin Rudd Reviews Shadowfax - In case you haven’t heard of it, there is an SOA reference architecture in the works called Shadowfax and Justin Rudd doesn’t like it. I have to admit, when I looked at it I saw the same thing… too complicated for most people.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
