  • Blog Post: Upcoming events

    My colleague, Korby Parnell , recently decided to withdraw from speaking on the “Microsoft Blogs: Pioneering Corporate Transparency” panel discussion that’s been scheduled for the upcoming Business Blogging Summit conference on Oct. 25-27 in Seattle, WA. I’m very honored that Korby recommended me as...
  • Blog Post: Introducing the SharePoint Team Blog!

    A couple of other bloggers have already discovered it, but we launched the SharePoint Team Blog in stealth mode this past Monday. The first entry was posted by Kurt Delbene , Corporate VP of the Office Servers product group, and a second entry was just posted this morning by Jeff Teper, General Manager...
  • Blog Post: Video interview of SharePoint Wikis/Blogs/RSS Program Managers now on Channel 9

    This video was done over a month ago, but it got held up in the queue since Scoble decided to leave Microsoft and had a ton of stuff to transition to the rest of his team. Anyway, the video is here on Channel9. One of the key issues that might not have been emphasized strongly enough in the video...
  • Blog Post: Important blog updates

    Some of you might have noticed that the layout and color scheme for my blog have changed significantly over the weekend. Thanks to Ken Levy's custom CSS , my blog is now a bit easier to read, I hope. But the more important (though visually subtle) change that I made was to my blog’s subtitle to which...
  • Blog Post: Lamest. Recruiting Move. Ever.

    I’ve been reading the Mini-Microsoft blog for some time now, and I’ve found the comments on it to be sometimes on the mark and sometimes annoying but never very lame. Until now. It appears that someone from Google Recruiting has been trolling Mini’s blog and now has posted a “ We’re hiring ” comment...
  • Blog Post: Why corporate blogging is good for the company as well as the employee/blogger

    Joshua Allen , the first corporate blogger at Microsoft, best describes how blogging has had a positive impact on the company while Tim Bray , the Father/co-inventor of XML and Sun employee, perfectly describes why blogging is good for the employee who blogs. Yup, it’s all about communication, and more...
  • Blog Post: Records Management Team Blog and "customer evidence"

    My work on the SharePoint Community Advancement Initiative continues at a dizzing pace. Earlier this week, I helped launch the Records Management Team Blog , which is a blog about the business challenges we are all facing and the opportunities to address these challenges using technology, as we encounter...
  • Blog Post: A best practice for team based blogging

    The SharePoint Team Blog just keeps getting better as the number and technical depth of posts increases. Jon Kauffman’s recent couple of posts is an excellent example of why so many Microsoft blogs have become so popular – they provide an insider’s look into how products that will be used by millions...
  • Blog Post: Web 2.0 this and that -- blah, blah, blah...

    I’ve been mildly amused by all the recent rantings about “Web 2.0” in the blogosphere. Many people, whose opinions I respect, don’t like the term (and Richard MacManus has a good summary) while a few, like Alex Barnett , still do. My own take on what’s going on with the Web right now is that it has finally...
  • Blog Post: #1 on MSN Search, Google, and A9, but #4 on Yahoo?

    Since I've been getting decent traffic to my blog during the past couple of weeks (and thank you all for your interest and feedback), I wondered if I've climbed up on the Results page of the major search engines. So, I searched for "Lawrence Liu" using the following search engines: MSN Google Yahoo A9...
  • Blog Post: My new blog at http://sharepoint.microsoft.com/blogs/lliu

    Long time no post. Yes, I've been very busy indeed. Well, it’s finally time to move this blog to its new home that’s powered by Office SharePoint Server. The URL is http://sharepoint.microsoft.com/blogs/lliu . Although it’s slightly longer to type than http://blogs.technet.com/lliu , you just have...
  • Blog Post: Please don't waste my time. Blog, don't just link!

    Alan Page's recent post struck a nerve with me. Blogging nothing but a link to someone else's blog post is almost like forwarding an e-mail that was sent to a distribution group back to the same DL . Right, it's utterly useless and a waste of the reader's time. If you're going to post just bookmarks...
  • Blog Post: Blogolocity with a “Scoble Accelerator” and a “Rubel Afterburner”

    Well, it appears that I was overly optimistic about a blogolocity of just 2 hours for my original “blogolocity” post . So, based on Scoble’s guidance about getting attention , I’m purposely including his name in this blog entry. Given that “Scoble” is one of Robert’s custom PubSub feeds, having his name...
  • Blog Post: Gadgets on SharePoint - for real!

    There are still nearly 90 minutes left (in PDT) until April Fool’s Day, but several people have already alerted me to a screenshot at the DashboardSpy, which appears to be a mocked up SharePoint site with some very cool (and useful) looking Gadgets for monitoring Scoble ’s KPIs. I found this very ironic...
  • Blog Post: Microsoft "Live Search" and a couple of other very cool things

    At the CEO Summit yesterday, Microsoft’s end-to-end search strategy was announced as “ Live Search ” (which I really like), and three new products were formally announced: Windows Live Search on the Desktop (I’m indifferent about the name): Helps you find precisely the file or information you’re...
