So What is Frimr ...?

You may have noticed the Frimr flag on the left hand side of my blog and wondered what it means.

Frimr was shown to me by Olivier (Embedded Developer Evangelist for France) whilst I was at TechEd in Barcleona.  Frimr is a Web 2.0 site created by his colleagues in Microsoft France.  Frimr evaluates your presence on the Internet with a very smart algorithm that crawls the internet and calculates your personal rank, the higher your rank, the more visible you are.

...and why the name?  "Frimer" is a French verb that means to bragg or boast.  So if you have a blog you want to boast about head on over to and start boasting.
