    That is really great; although I have only been around for about a year of it. Nice work, and as jamie said, I am also looking forward to the future of Channel 9.

    I'm beginning to think Channel 9 is now being treated like the idiot kid brother of Microsoft video channels. In a few weeks, it'll feel like a Community Cable Channel with your neighbors doing videos of fish filleting or videos of city council meetings.

    Charles said it was the sixth, though...  Can someone clarify for us?

  • scobleizer

    I totally forgot that it is our birthday. Damn. I'm working hard on videos. Did two more interviews today.

    I gotta go get some ice cream at the cafeteria!

    I just clicked on the link to my Profile, and it says I joined on April 6, 2004.  I thought I signed up on the first day.  Probably I put things off for one more day, though, since that's pretty much the story of my life. Sad

    "Microsoft quietly launched a new site on Tuesday that combines blogs, discussion forums and other technology to improve communications with developers."

    Tuesday was 6 April...  5 April was a Monday.

  • scobleizer

    If I remember right we officially opened on Tuesday, April 6. A few people snuck in on that Monday night, though. But even then it was already Tuesday in Australia. Smiley
