My name is Robert McLaws. You may know me as BoyWonder.NET, frequent poster on the Weblogs @ ASP.NET. What you may not know is that I am also President and Chief Software Architect of Interscape Technologies, Inc., the company that is hosting and sponsoring this site.
LonghornBlogs.com is a community initiative to help spread the word with factual information about the next version of Windows, straight from the people that are building it. Because of this, the majority of people posting here (at least for now) will be Microsoft employees. Our intention here was to keep the signal-to-noise ratio extremely high. You won't find personal posts here, just good solid information about Longhorn.
We've just launched, but several changes are already in the works. We're planning on having every blog support default categories, and have global feeds for each of those categories. You can expect to see categories like “Aero”, “WinFS”, and “Avalon” around shortly after PDC. You'll also see pieces of information that involve other technologies, such as Whidbey, Orcas, and Yukon. That's because all of these technologies are being utilized very heavily in Longhorn.
At any rate, this is a website for the community. As we get closer to the public beta, we'll be able to involve more of the community in the process. For right now, tell us what you want to see. Feel free to drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll see what we can do. I'm very excited to be your host, and I'm looking forward to an exciting few years. Welcome to LonghornBlogs.com!
