Dear Robert:
I’m not going to get into the firestorm that is taking place on your blog today about the new BETA (it’s just a BETA guys) for IE7, but I think you are going to end up eating your hat for this quote:
“It’s interesting that many bloggers (both pro and amateur) have been giving me crud the past week or two for “being fast to publish” and “not calling sources to check on my reporting” but that the Register, a professional journalism outlet (they get paid for journalism, I do not) apparently didn’t call our development teams to check into this report and get their side of the story.”
Umm, Robert, you are a journalist now. And you’re also the second most influential executive technical evangelist at Microsoft. There’s a set of responsibilities that comes with that, and one of them is checking your facts.
Your friend and admirer,
