Dan Warne wants to know if we’re listening
Today Dan Warne from APC asked if Microsoft is listening. In fact, he mentioned my team specifically!
The answer, of course, is a resounding YES! We want to hear everything you’re saying about our product. We want to know what features you like, what bugs you hate, and you think we could be doing better.
Unfortunately, Dan Warne was right when he said that the Desktop Search Wiki on Channel 9 had become rather dormant. What’s interesting to me is the timing. About two weeks ago we began talking about getting our team involved in some new community-focused efforts. In fact, we have someone working with our team now whose sole purpose is to make sure we can foster conversation with and within our user and developer communities. Just last week I was telling him about the C9 wiki and how great I thought it was during the original WDS beta and the first release. I also mentioned that I was planning to go update it and sort through some things very soon.
That effort began today. I moved the WDS wiki out of the “MSN Search” section (don’t know why it was there in the first place), and updated a few links. There’s a lot of information on there, but I and other team members will be visiting there regularly and responding to users. I’ll post more about it later in the week. But why wait? Jump in, and join the conversation!
