Across Microsoft there are literally hundreds of teams and individuals actively blogging on almost every topic relevant to the work we do (and plenty that aren’t relevant but still interesting!). This blog is not intended to replace the richness and diversity of these blogs, nor to suggest reading just one blog is the best way to stay in touch with what’s happening.

35) 3 Pillar Global Blog – Technology moves at light speed, and business must adapt to meet the needs of their evolving client base. But today’s economy is not an environment where businesses can add jobs for every new technological change. Focus is key, but does that compromise agility?

39) Cleantech Blog – Cleantech Blog was set up in 2005 as one of the first blogs on cleantech – hence the name,!

We conceived of it as an informal home on the web for those of us seeking to expand the work in cleantech started by groups like the Cleantech Group and CleanEdge. For more history on cleantech, check out “What is Cleantech” the first history of the term cleantech which we wrote in 2008.

We took our original “spiritual leadership” from Rob Day’s Cleantech Investing Blog, Tyler Hamilton’s Clean Break, and James Fraser’s The Energy Blog.

We are a multiblog, and our bloggers deserve more credit than I do. We are not journalists, though we have several published authors in the group, most of us write about what we see and do in the sector every day. And not to reduce the efforts of the rest of us, but special thanks to Richard Stuebi, a long time cleantech executive and analyst who was our first blogger, and nearly 5 years later still starts every week for thousands of us with his Monday Thoughts on Cleantech column.

Techolo started as on 2006 as I got my Zune on the month of its release in the USA. Since then I have blogged about Zunes and Microsoft products until there was a need to expand thus the name change to Techolo.

48) Generation YES Blog – We believe that technology in schools is critical to bringing 21st century educational opportunities to everyone. However, we see that traditional approaches to integrating real technology into classrooms have largely failed. Even though visionary educators have seen the potential for decades, there are far too few bright and shining success stories. More often than not there is a failure of implementation between the vision and the action. We believe the missing component is student involvement, student voice, and student ownership of the process.

49) Tech@FTC – The Tech@FTC blog is published by the Federal Trade Commission. The views expressed here are representative of the Chief Technologist, and do not represent the views of the Chairman or the Commission.
