It was obviously only a matter of time before this happened. Building on the previous post, I wanted to briefly include something about MSN Filter, given its recent launch. With posts in five categories (lifestyle, music, tv, sports and technology), it’s a bit unclear what the immediate goal behind Filter may be, but the technology section seems to be on par with other blogs in the genre (as if I’m any authority). At least they’ve put up some information about those behind the posts – when I first saw filter the posts might as well have come from the sky. According to this InformationWeek article, Microsoft is building content with the help of hired bloggers, “experts in different areas…[with] free reign to write about those topics.”
Features offered by the service include RSS, MSN alerts to new content and comments (.NET passport required).
Talk amongst yourselves…and do what you will.
