Web Communication – It Gets Better

Web Communication – It Gets Better

The quality of communication is important. Quantity is also important. Both effect your team’s productivity in different ways. Over the years, the tools available have dramatically increased our ability to communicate effectively. And, improvements are still being made.

I ask a question and get all kinds of responses in the same day.” I replied, “That’s great! Finding answers at work can

Virtual Earth API 6.2 with SharePoint

Virtual Earth API Update As I promised at my SharePoint Saturday Presentation in Boston, I’ve updated my previous example integrating SharePoint with the Virtual Earth SDK.
