Robert Scoble reads the Dogme 95 "Vow of Chastity"

I have just suggested Robert to take look at the vow, and he did! Having a chance to interact with Robert in Channel 9 is so cool! I think it is one of the things that make Channel 9 so succesful.

I will also add him to my MSN messenger soon. I just need to wait until he creates his third passport account.

WinFS will be late, Longhorn on 2006, WinFX... Who knows

I have read all the information linked by this post by Chris Sells. I see all is very interesting news. I am not sure, but perhaps there is a possibility that WinFX will be released before Longhorn ships.

All updated questions in the Longhorn Developer FAQ are answered by the old friend of this blog, John Montgomery. I will refreshing my browser on his blog until he posts more details about this.

Does blogging make sense?

Lately, I cannot find anything compelling enough to blog about. It could be because my general mood: it is also becoming difficult for me to talk with people about trivial subjects. The most prevalent feeling I have these days seems to be that I know too little about too much. Besides, I happen to be introverted. So why should I find pleasure in blogging?

Let's try to do the tick of blogging just for the sake of it. I will begin with a recollection of some things that have happend to me these days.

Last happy moment: Today in the Olympic games Argentina won 89 - 81 over the USA "dream team" in basketball. Tomorrow the insolent team representing my country will try to get the Olympic gold medal, for the first time ever. Congratulations Manu and all, you made me cry! By the way Manu, what about transofming your "NEWS by Manu" site in a full fledged blog? Right now, it is so close to a blog that it hurts!

Last enlightment: Rich people spend their lives acquiring assets, while poor and middle class people usually acquire liabilities in the belief their are assets. I readed this a week ago in the spanish version of Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki. I guess I am just following Chris Sells' lead in my attempt to be a geek that understands money.

So, what happened to the Hotmail upgrade

Time has passed and there is no news about the capacity upgrade to the free Hotmail service. Only yesterday I received a notification of the new 2 GB limit for Hotmail Plus. I have seen no news after the one that said we were going to get 250 MB. I wonder if this is the last word.

Buttercup (pink-candle) is back blogging

She says that she "just didn't feel like posting stuff here". It is weird when you don't know the whereabouts of your blog-friends.
