What Microsoft Thinks the Future Looks Like

Microsoft's Vision of the Future

Gizmodo originally publish an article where they editorialized the most recent video released by Microsoft.  They even took a light-hearted jab at them, joking about needing a lot more hand sanitizer due to touch interfaces.  I would be more concerned about there needing to be a lot more screen cleaners everywhere to counter-act our greasy fingers!

Klout.com Headquarters: Front Door

Originally, Chris Hammond and I were planning to go to the #KloutDevNight meetup tonight to hang out with the good folks at Klout.com.

Lightbox Gallery 01.09.00 for DotNetNuke Released

Lightbox Gallery Module for DotNetNuke

There is yet another release of the most popular image gallery module for DotNetNuke, the Lightbox Gallery module.  I am very proud of this release, as it marks a few important milestones for this module.  All the while, it continues to be one of my favorite open source modules to work on.  With this release, it continues to also improve upon the number of features it has and the number of people that use it as their standard image gallery module for DNN.
