<p>No, not from Microsoft or even Bing Maps (formerly Virtual Earth), but from MSDN. My blog is moving to the new <a href="http://www.bing.com/community"><span style="color: #006ff7;">Bing Community site</span></a>. In fact, if you&rsquo;re reading this you&rsquo;re getting the entry from the new site, so &ldquo;Hello, World!&rdquo; Yeah, I&rsquo;m the only person that can say it and mean it! Now, what to call my readers since we changed to Bing? I used to refer to you as &ldquo;Virtual Earthlings,&rdquo; so maybe &ldquo;Bingalings&rdquo; or &ldquo;Bing Bongs?&rdquo; &ldquo;Earthbings?&rdquo; Oye, this will take some marinating. The new communities site will aggregate all of the greatest Bing Bloggers around Microsoft into a single portal. Now, my old <a href="http://blogs.msdn.com/virtualearth"><span style="color: #006ff7;">Virtual Earth Blog</span></a> will be designated as the <a href="http://www.bing.com/maps/blog"><span style="color: #006ff7;">Bing Maps Blog</span></a> under the Bing Community. You can check out my new blog at <a href="http://www.bing.com/maps/blog"><span style="color: #006ff7;">Bing.com/maps</span></a>. I&rsquo;ll cover both consumer (Bing Maps) and enterprise (Bing Maps for Enterprise) as a part of my blog. Don&rsquo;t be surprised when you get redirected to the new site and don&rsquo;t see my personal Photosynth or some placard of a conference at which I&rsquo;m presenting (currently, ReMIX Australia, btw). It&rsquo;s just the new community site and I&rsquo;ll find ways to hack it up and make it mine over time. And, you may have to update your RSS readers and blog aggregators; but either way, follow me to the new site (or welcome to the new site) and we will make map-passionate love together. </p>
