Atlas will be Microsoft AJAX Library

This is pretty obvious but I am going to make post anyway since I need to start to fork yet another JavaScript library. Atlas Javascript Library will be renamed to Microsoft AJAX Library and server-side stuff ASP.NET 2.0 AJAX Extensions.

Scoble left from Microsoft, but not into Google

Robert Scoble has left from Microsoft and he is going to join Silicon Valley startup PodTech.net as a videoblogger. I wasn’t really surprise that he left from Microsoft, IMHO he wasn’t really “Microsoft material” but just because of that he made Microsoft look much more interesting and appealing company through he’s blog. I would have expected him to go work at Google.  I think Scoble and Google would be a match, even the names fits together :).

Well, best of luck to Robert Scoble I will continue reading he’s blog now with even more interesting news and thoughts.
