It's no secret... any 10 year old could have written:
I think that I shall never know,
the ins and outs of SEO.
I stay up late, work every night,
trying to improve my site.
At this time it's lots of stress,
but in the end I'll have success!
I'm waiting for my cheque.... 8-|

Looks like they can't make up their minds, try going to www.start.com.
03-15-2006, 08:01 AM
huh.. don't know exackly what's with this start.com... might be theirs or might have the right to use their technology in some way..
didn't read anything about it..
www.start.com Microsoft apparently bought that domain in 1998.
It looks like a regular news site, but if you set switches on your browsers and reload you will find:
this site is not an officially supported site. it is an incubation experiment and doesn't represent any particular strategy or policy. for other incubation experiments, see http://sandbox.msn.com. enjoy!

And you can have a look at the MSN sandbox. Viral marketing or crass, but certainly one in the eye for Google.

Live is cool but I don't know about this start thing. They should go with live.
03-15-2006, 01:45 PM

Bill Gates is a Rolling Stones fan... "Start me up" was one of their singles; I'm sure this start.com has BG written all over it.

Interesting. They could combine the two and get start-live.

Where can I get more info about Windows Live...:)
03-17-2006, 03:00 AM
I search something on it. It doesn't move ahead. animation keeps running...
03-23-2006, 04:04 AM
same with me... no results and only a "...loading" animation... either my machine it too slow or the WINDOWS LIVE is.
03-23-2006, 04:07 AM
wait... i have the results. sorry for spamming this post with duplicate post and lose patience... but was excited enough to tell that this is really good... shows my site among top listing which was under sandbox with few keywords.

The 'start' of start.com relates to that funny button on the bottom left of your windows desktop.
Back in '98, MS was still in the realms of IE4.01 and the NT4 Option Pack. Sad as it might seem now, in many ways they were streets ahead of anyone you care to think of - but unfortunately more of a 'Jack of all trades' and master of none.
This around the beggining of Microsft "DNA" architecture - which we all use now (even if you dont know it). Distrubuted interNet Applications architecture - taking the 3 tier system for software development to the browser.
Anyway, start.com was the idea of the SQL Server development team who were heavily behind the microsoft backoffice development of inrantets, and the power thereof. SQL Server 7 was getting http integration, XML, and the MS exchange database was integral to almost everything MS wanted to talk about at the time. Oh - plus OLE 2 and OLAP. They were also heavily involved with CORBA, and the moves from COM to DCOM and transaction server. The thing was, that with all this technology that could enable real distrubuted enterprise computing, and transactions, they wanted to be able to demonstrate the capabilities.
Sadly, all they ever devoted the time and money to was smoke and mirrors.
Shame though - could have been great.
