VARBusiness article on blogging at Microsoft.

So let’s take a look at some of the more popular Microsoft blogs, which have given the ogre a new voice. They’ve yet to make Microsoft as cool as Shrek, but they’re getting people to look at the vendor in a new light.

The site is the brainchild of Robert Scoble, who works at Microsoft as an evangelist on the Windows team. [VARBusiness | In The Beginning | The Ogre’s New Voice: Can Blogs Save Microsoft’s Image?]
