"If you are a Windows user who likes to share a lot of photos with your family and friends, then you will be happy to learn that uploading photos just got a whole lot easier. In a few moments XP users can download and install a simple photo uploading wizard that integrates directly into your XP File Explorer. Just select the photo or photos you wish to upload from any folder and click on the "Publish these items to the Web" link found in your XP sidebar."
Imagine that, a desktop extension (almost at the OS level) to that most webish of web apps, the blog publishing tool. If only operating systems kept evolving to better support the hardware they’re supposed to manage, instead of trying to include more and more such media-related gizmos best left to ISVs.
I'm CEO of an online trade publishing firm in the marketing and defense verticals. We try to make news and data digestible and useful in an environment that is more noisy each day. This personal blog mixes my thoughts and interests on politics, business, software, and more, based on my business and personal experiences. Over the years I have posted items that turned out spectacularly wrong, and a few posts that stood the test of times better. Personal views only.
