Microsoft launches The Fire Hose blog

Earlier today we added a new blog to the stable of official blogs from the corporate communications team here at Microsoft.

The Fire Hose covers the latest developments across the company by curating and linking to the best stuff of the day. This means short, iterative posts combined with a mix of solid, in-depth storytelling.


The Fire Hose joins The Official Microsoft Blog, Microsoft on the Issues and of course this blog in the News Center’s family of blogs. Here is a summation of the mission of each of our existing blogs:


  • The Official Microsoft Blog – Covers and adds context to top-level news from the company.
  • Microsoft on the Issues – Gives Microsoft’s perspective on the latest public policy and citizenship news in the tech industry.
  • Next at Microsoft – Provides an insider’s view of Microsoft with a focus on the latest technology and where it’s used inside and outside the company.


Each of our blogs is designed to serve different facets of our company, and we believe the addition of The Fire Hose will help us in our overarching mission to tell Microsoft’s story to the world. Have a look at our new blog. We hope you find it compelling, and we’d love to hear what you think. Feel free to e-mail the Microsoft News Center staff with feedback and suggestions on how to make it better.
