Microsoft Goes Web 2.0
In a major move today that is still unfolding, Seattle-based Microsoft Corporation announced two significant new online offerings. Named Windows Live and Office Live, both are Web-based experiences that are intended to help people work seamlessly from the Web across multiple computers, between office and home, and more.
While details are sketchy, and no mention of Web 2.0 was made explicitly, TechCrunch's Michael Arrington had a front row seat at the announcement at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco today. TechCrunch is an exclusive profiler of Web 2.0 applications and so you can draw your own conclusions from him being in invited attendance. Kudos to Arrington also for posting pictures on Flickr live from the event.
