Microsoft is abandoning Windows Live Spaces

This blog will must move to WordPress.com before March 2011.

On Monday, Microsoft announced to users of its spaces.live.com blogging facility, “We have partnered with the world’s leading blogging service, WordPress.com, to be the premier blogging service for Windows Live customers.” I like WordPress, and undoubtedly it’s superior to spaces.live.com. It seems that Microsoft will shut down spaces.live.com after March, 2011.

At some point between now and March, I’ll need to move this blog, Russ’ Space (which is hosted on spaces.live.com), to WordPpress.com. I’ll probably do so toward the end of this year, to give Microsoft time to debug their porting software. I’ll do my best to keep its appearance consistent with its current look.

I’d finally learned how to work around the limitations of spaces.live.com’s editor. (The secret is to hand code everything in HTML.) This again proves John Dvorak’s statement: Whatever you learned this week will be null and void by this time next week.
