Microsoft, Blogs, Aggregators, and programming …
Microsoft seems to have taken an all-out effort to embrace and explore the possibilities of RSS and Weblogs. This article is a simple ASP.NET project to create an aggregator – an application that gathers news articles from a range of RSS feeds.

Outside of this article, it’s interesting to see how many Microsoft employees have begun to blog, and that they even are supporting the blogging of their various events such as their PDC conference next week.

When I was at Novell a couple of years ago (has it been that long?) I was proposing several possible ways that blogs would become important mechanisms for information dissemination. Seeing more and more RSS-oriented content coming from Microsoft tells me that they are looking at the same thing.
