Created to fill a need?
So I don’t know if there is a real market for this, and perhaps some others who have been blogging longer than I can weigh in. Microsoft has released another of their Live tools, this one intended to help people blog and do other basic web editing. Live Writer is a WYSIWYG blog posting application. It automatically integrates with your given blog service pretty quickly (in fact I’m doing a test post from the application, and I just downloaded it about 5 minutes ago). There are many articles about it already, so I’ll leave the full review to those individuals. I just wonder if this is something that is a real need in the community, or just a cool look-what-we-did feat to hype Live.
Oh, and it is kinda cool to post maps from this, so here ya go. My alma mater, UW:
