Microsoft tries to get bloggers to hype Longhorn

Nominations for Team99 has begun. Team99 is an orchestrated event that even Robert Scoble helping push to the blogosphere. Team99 will be the Microsoft’s voice to promote Longhorn and become the authorities on the new operating system. While this blogging evangelism seems to be a way for Microsoft to tap the blogosphere for help, the latest Longhorn peek by bloggers at the WinHEC conference was handled very poorly by the Redmond based software giant. Not only were the screenshots of Longhorn pulled after citing a beta agreement, but the handling of the situation caused bloggers all around to criticize the issue. Great way to start off on the wrong foot.
