MSDN 2.0

A year ago, Microsoft updated its TechNet Web site with a large focus on modernizing the navigation. Now Jeff Schwartz, a writer for Redmond Developer News (our dev book that focuses on management issues -- check 'er out here) reports that MSDN is getting a similar facelift.

The programming site is trying to turn from a static library into a dynamic, community resource. Another area of attack? Improving search, which isn't as easy as it seems given that so much of the content revolves around source code.

The coolest part is that Microsoft is just now talking to developers about what they need, so there's still a chance for you to have your say.
