MSN Spaces

Commentary by Stephen Downes

Microsoft's entry into the world of blogs, MSN Spaces, launches. It's easy enough to create a blog, but not to create a personal profile on the blog - you have to have a Passport ID for that. Updating the blog was a bit tricky, and the photo that I added with my post ended up in a separate photos list. Couldn't add music because it requires a playlist from Windows Media Player. The site was slow. This is a typical Microsoft entry into a new field: nowhere near as good as the market leaders, painfully imitative, but leveraging Microsoft's market position to try to achieve lock-in and push the competition out. I don't think it will work this time: people are more loyal to their blogs than they are to their browsers. My test blog is here (nothing to see, really).
