Tip of the Day Meets the Micro-blog

The Silverlight MicroBlog and Tip of the Day…

Every day I'll publish a very short tip and to do so, I will depend heavily on contributions from Microsoft Employees and members of the Development community and readers of the blog.

 Starting immediately,  please send your MicroBlog Contributions to jliberty@Microsoft.com as follows:

1. The Subject Line should be Tip of the Day

2. The Text for publication should be no more than 130 characters (including punctuation and spaces.) Plain text.

3. Please append your 2-4 character alphanumeric  signature (initials or whatever you like). I reserve the right to append numerals to disambiguate duplicates.

4. If you want public credit, please add a line at the bottom to the effect "You may match this signature to my name John Doe" — if that line is present, I will update this blog entry with the name you send if/when I use your contribution (see below)

Thus,  a typical email contribution might look like this:

To jliberty@microsoft.com
From: alex@alexHorovitz.com
Subject: Tip of the Day

You may match AAH to Alex Horovitz.

What would be published in the Microblog would be

At the bottom of this page would be

Initials To Names

Hope that is clear, and I look forward to your contributions. Let's give this a couple months  and see if it is useful.
