Happy New Year (and technologies)

Go ahead and check out the amazing new thing before every one else does:


Of all of the things to pour forth from the Microsoft Technology Firehose, it is the one that has completely captivated me.  It is going to be huge.  It smells like one of the things that comes around every decade or so that can completely change the IT industry and the way the software engineers work.

That could be scary, but Oslo is just so cool...it's hard to imagine even the most clench-jawed, steaming-mad Slashdotter disliking it.  I'm sure, however, that they will rise to the occasion.


And more important than any technology nonsense, my best, most sincere wishes to you and yours for a happy, prosperous and fun New Year.
