Holy Crap! 

I'm supposed to be on vacation, but it doesn't look like this news has hit the blogosphere. Ward Cunningham, inventor of the Wiki and general pattern wonk, has joined Microsoft. He's got a wiki page up for tips. I got to meet him on Tuesday and promised not to blog his arrival until he posted it on his site. Welcome Ward! I'll be doing some very cool things with him, but more on that later. In the meantime, check out Testing Software Patterns on the MSDN Architecture Center.

Speaking of wikis, the source code FlexWiki, another .NET based wiki, is available online. I need to dig thru FlexWiki to see if having DevHawk Wiki around anymore makes any sense. [DevHawk]

Guys,
Come on it should not be a suprise to you! Microsoft knows that the future lays in the Patterns and ability to communicate complex idea among developers :).
