SharePoint’s Impact on Records Management (AIIM)
Many of us who have had long careers in Records Management have the experience of trying to get management support for our records management efforts. Many years ago, we recognized that management often did not appreciate the importance of information and records and the means of managing them. We realized that records management courses were not provided in MBA, and similar management, education programs. We understood that as current senior managers rose through their careers, they had little exposure to records management.
All SharePoint Problems Are Our Own
On Friday at the SharePoint Symposium, as we contemplated the role of SharePoint in business and in life, it became very clear that the way most people approach the enterprise platform is not in tune with how they approach other life-altering events — with caution and strategic actions. And the fact is, SharePoint will alter the way you work. If it doesn't, why are you spending so much time and money implementing it?
CIOs Talk About How Social Networking Builds Enterprise Collaboration (CIO)
Over the last five years or so, more organizations have used social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter to communicate with customers. Now many organizations are taking a cue from those sites to deploy more socially minded communication and collaboration tools. Does taking a more social, collaborative approach work? CIO.com spoke with Vanguard, the financial services company, and the Healthcare Businesswomen's Association, both of whom were recipients of CIO 100 awards for collaboration, to find out.
Better on the Inside: Under the Hood of Windows 8 (Ars Technica)
Windows 8's most obvious—and most divisive—new feature is its user interface. However, it would be a mistake to think that the user interface is the only thing that's new in Windows 8: there's a lot that's changed behind the scenes, too. Just as is the case with the user interface, many of the improvements made to the Windows 8 core are motivated by Microsoft's desire to transform Windows into an effective tablet operating system. Even those of us with no interest at all in tablets can stand to take advantage of these changes, however. For example, Windows 8 is more power efficient and uses less memory than Windows 7; while such work is critical to getting the software to run well on low-memory tablets with all-day battery life, it's equally advantageous for laptop users.
In The Enterprise, Windows 8 Tablets May Zoom Past PCs (ZDNet)
With Windows 8 in enterprises, it's increasingly looking like a Tale of Two Versions. Despite having an entrenched user base of hundreds of millions of potentially-upgradeable PCs, CIOs and other IT leaders are showing more interest in Windows 8 on tablets and convertible devices that some are nicknaming 'tabtops' or 'laptablets' (see my gallery of seventeen of the hottest Windows 8 tablets).
My Predictions for Windows Phone 8 (RedmondMag)
Microsoft will officially release Windows Phone 8 next week. Although some details about the new phones and their mobile operating system have been publically released, Windows Phone 8 has for the most part been veiled in secrecy. That being the case, I thought it might be fun to share with you my predictions for the new mobile operating system.
Yahoo Will Ignore Do Not Track for IE10 Users (CNET)
Yahoo will ignore "Do Not Track" requests from Internet Explorer 10 because, it claims, Microsoft is violating the concept's intent by turning it on by default. Today's announcement reignites a conflagration that started with Microsoft's announcement in May, and became even more incendiary earlier this month when the Digital Advertising Alliance said advertising companies that choose to ignore Do Not Track requests "automatically set in IE10 or any other browser" would not be penalized.

Changes to the Design View in SharePoint Designer 2013 (Microsoft SharePoint Team Blog)
Hi, I’m Keenan Newton, a senior product marketing manager on the SharePoint team. We’re making some changes to the Design View in SharePoint Designer 2013, and I wanted to talk about the reasoning behind the changes.
SQL Server 2012 – Fixing Up Post-Patch Issues (The WorkerThread Blog)
I have an “all in one” virtual machine for demonstrating the Business Intelligence features of SQL Server 2012 in combination with SharePoint 2010. My VM is based on the “Kiwi Build” setup documented in the TechNet Wiki article here (although mine is using VMWare Workstation instead of Hyper-V). As well as all varieties of Analysis Services (Tabular, MultiDimensional, PowerPivot) my VM also runs SharePoint, Master Data Services and Data Quality Services.
SPD 2013 Missing Design View, is it Really Such a Big Deal? (Winsmarts)
First, please read what my friend Marc Anderson has to say about it. More, and More and even more. Also, my friend Asif Rehmani has some views on it as well. They bring up some important points, but in short, everything that allows for Visual Editing of pages, is gone! And anything that concerned visual editing, (and there are many such scenarios), is now gone. What is the practical upshot of all this?
Understanding Site Policies In SharePoint 2013 (ARB Security Solutions)
Since SharePoint sites can quickly grow large and be hard to control, you have to create new ones as you need them. However, it is going to be very infrequent that you will be deleting any of them. You can use site policies to help you monitor and control your SharePoint sites. Make sure there is a life cycle defined for a site so that it can be deleted or closed at a given point in time.
SharePoint 2010: Long Polling Technique Using JQuery and Wcf Rest Services Example (SharePointDevWiki)
In the world of web 2.0 we need to make our application (in our case SharePoint) more collaborative, interactive and responsive. That’s why I created a nice example that uses the Long Polling pattern to get us the real-time web applications experience like Gmail or Facebook has. In our example we'll create a simple Like button that updates our custom list number filed and increases it every time we click our button. Below we'll create a label div that shows in real-time the number of likes. (At the end of my post you can download the sample project).
How to Upload a .wsp Solution in SharePoint 2010 (SharePoint (and Project Server) Shenanigans)
Have you ever gotten a .SharePoint 2010 wsp file and thought “Now what?”. Well there are two ways to do this. You can upload the .wsp to the solution gallary within the site collection and the create a sub-site based on the .wsp. The videos below shows this technique.

Extending SharePoint Lists Without InfoPath, Part 2: Bamboo Column Level Security (The Bamboo Team Blog)
This is a continuation of the Bamboo Custom Column blog series. Today we will discuss how to protect data stored in lists and libraries utilizing Bamboo Column Level Security. This Custom Column encrypts text, numbers, and currency, allowing only users designated by the list owner to see and/or modify the content of the column. To begin, we will create a new column. Within the List Ribbon, select Create Column within the Manage Views grouping. You can also create columns by going to List Settings and selecting Add a column in the Columns section of the settings window.
