At the start of my 6th year at Amastra, I thought that it was finally time to make the change from my trusty old WordPress.com blog, to my own hosted blog at Amastra. It feels strange making the move.
I started my blogging journey at Microsoft in 2004, and have had this blog as a back up knowledge base – just in case something changed there. I’ve been blogging for almost ten years.
July 2005 saw me talking about a variety of things. The release name for Longhorn, Windows Vista was been announced, i blogged about LCS (now called Lync by the way) and PIC connectivity and the availability of the .mobi domain. Was it really nine years ago?
In July 2007 I was excited about the VOIP feature in Office Communicator 2007 and VOIP and Skype (which now belongs to Microsoft!) July 2008 had me talking about Office Communications Server (Now Lync) integrating with Lotus Notes. I also played with Round Table, the multi user video conferencing device
I’ve had a nostalgic look back at how technology has changed in the (almost ten) years I’ve been blogging. I’m pleased I can now look back and reflect on the fact that I’ve been blogging through an amazing time for technology.
User Generated Content has risen to the fore, and interactive media pervades our everyday mobile, location aware lives.
What a blast, what a journey so far. I do hope you will continue it with me here http://amastra.com/blog/
