    Wow man, the interview with Charles is awesome.

    Good point. XML literals was a very good feature which I certainly hadn't seen before.

    But when will VB start to innovate? We have seen all this before in Ruby, for instance.

    I wonder how much money I have to throw at Charles for banning you. Perplexed

    Charles, I'm still wondering exactly what audience you are trying to address. Where are you trying to take C9?

    How about hell? That seems more appropriate. 

    Don't be fooled by the fact I'm very explicit in my opinion. Trying to sugar coat just doesn't help anybody.

    I don't like hurting anybodies feelings or saying that I didn't like something. I'm just honest.

    Casual conversation with developers at microsoft. It seems to be what you are trying to do, only on a slightly different level.

    C9 has always been about exposing the average joe inside microsoft. Robert Hess and Co. tried to do that with "Behind the Code", only that it was not really all that casual at all. It was waaay too formal.

    Well Max. Here's the thing.

    When I surf on the internet, I try to make it easier for myself to navigate the information. There's a lot of stuff which I don't watch on C9. Mostly the more marketing-like stuff that does tend to happen once in a while. Going deep and the like I love.

    Niche sites are really popular for a reason. The user can find what it wants. What happens when said site sells out? Users flee.

    We have a site for students, a site for developers and a site for consumers. It seems like you are trying to find a middle-ground for all this. 

    What about trying to move this to C10? I think you are trying to feed 
    to developers

    But isn't that the whole point of a pilot? The post even asks for constructive criticism. Am I then supposed to sit back and watch a bad idea falling to the ground and compromise the integrity of C9 as a developer community? I don't think so.

    You know, I have often pitched C9 when at conferences. What do you think the major selling point is? The fact it's JUST developer content.

    Funny you should mention you wanting to do different kind of music while I was writing up my post.

    Case in point, eh?
