Not so Live

I have to chuckle at this: Microsoft is unloading its Windows Live Spaces accounts on WordPress.com. By spring, those old blogs will be as dead as GeoCities.

I expect most people to make the adjustment with only minor grumbling, though I feel for this guy:

I am not going to spend dozens of my hours building a site, only so some entity can tear it down at their whim. I haven’t decided whether to leave it up as is, or just save what content remains to files, remove the whole thing and stop online journaling (that’s really what blogging is — it’s journaling) altogether!

Of course, this is the reason why we buy your own domains and hosting in the first place, right?
