Microsoft has put out the word via Robert Scoble that Microsoft is looking for a few good bloggers to help critique there new version of Windows in the coming months before its release. Team 99 as it is being called needs folks who know Windows and know how to blog.

The method to the Microsoft madness will be the bloggers to come up with 20 people in the Microsoft blogging community instead of slogging through bloggers on their own. It will save them quite a bit of time wading through the applicants for the process.

Scobles posted the draft notice in his blog over the weekend, "The problem is, Microsoft can't deal with millions of people all at once. It's impossible to listen to that loud a crowd. So, let's start small. 20 people to start with. Why 20? It's how many can fit into an average conference room at Microsoft. I want some developers there, some "super users".

Regulars to the blog have already responded heavily with hundreds of messages on who they thing should be involved in this process. Members of the blog corp will be required to sign a non-disclosure agreement. The formal process hadn't been decided yet but Scobles insisted that they all be bloggers and be "passionate and authoritative about computer".
