Memo from Martin P Burns of PricewaterhouseCoopers

However, you're far more likely to be using hotmail for business purposes
(for example, as a quick email solution when on a client site) than when
uploading photos to Yahoo.

[admin stuff - can we please take this to thechat, and y'all owe <tips>]

<tip type="capturing business requirements">
When developing a list of things which you'll need to build into a
site, remember to document *everything* - don't assume you'll get
anything unless you document it. This includes search...

I just have to say, I'm not even sure MS was FIRST with this. Yahoo! has
those clubs, and if you post pictures or content to any Yahoo club, it
states in the Agreement that *they* suddenly own your material. So, post
that family picture, but remember if you do you give the pic to Yahoo. Post
an original poem on such a site, and you have lost your ownership of your
original work. Anyone who thinks this stuff is "free" needs to read the
Terms of any Agreement they accept.

> someone is smart doesn't mean they don't do stupid things) or
> anything else private, important, or secret in nature is giving
> Microsoft not only co-ownership rights to the content of those
