  • Blog Post: MIX07 UK Podcast with Craig Murphy

    I sat down with Craig Murphy to chat about Windows Live and life in general at MIX07 UK. Craig has just posted a podcast of that conversation. I've known Craig for many years through the Delphi community. I think we first met in person in 2001 at "The Delphi Conference" run by the Borland User Group...
  • Blog Post: MIX07 UK Blogging

    The title of honorary MIX07 UK stenographer goes to Sebastien Lambla (aka SerialSeb) for transcribing nearly word for word just about every session he attended this week, in realtime! Check out the detail in his notes on "Building Next Generation Web Applications using Windows Live Services" , for example...

  • Blog Post: Blogging at ReMix07 London

    I'm sitting next to Angus in the back row of the ReMix07 London keynote. Angus is blogging in Windows Live Writer, and the guy on the other side of him is blogging in Windows Live Writer. Everyone loves a parade, so here I am blogging in Windows Live Writer, too. It's times like these when I wish I had...
  • Blog Post: Where Have We Heard That Before?

    Yesterday the Seattle Times ran an article about Penny Arcade and the overnight success of the Penny Arcade Expo . I had to laugh a little when the article used the words "imploded" and "E3" in the same sentence. I used pretty much the same pairing of words back in my January 2007 Events Calendar post...

  • Blog Post: Maker Faire

    Photos from this weekend's Maker Faire Part carnival, part science fair, part flea market, part performance art. It was funky, kooky, often corny, occasionally silly, and universally fun. The only thing I can think of that would be more fun than going to Maker Faire next year would be to be an exhibitor...
  • Blog Post: See Popfly at MakerFaire: May 19-20 San Mateo Fairgrounds

    Hey, whadayaknow: John and the Popfly team will be at the O'Reilly Maker Faire this weekend in San Mateo.

  • Blog Post: MIX07 Speaker Interviews on Channel 9

    Video interviews of many of the MIX07 speakers are posted up on Channel 9 . I think most of these were filmed before MIX and released during the event. Koji and I were interviewed by Catherine Heller here .
  • Blog Post: MIX07: POST/GET/PUT/DELETE Your Way To Windows Live Data

    Martin Heller posted an article on Infoworld, " Data Wants To Be Free ," about the Windows Live Data "secret session" at MIX07. The Windows Live Data service (probably not its final name) enables a deeper level of integration and data access than the devlive web controls, but still maintains user control...
  • Blog Post: MIX07: Extending the Browser Programming Model with Silverlight

    Silverlight implements isolated local storage on the client. Currently in the Alpha, the storage is limited to 1MB per web application and is keyed to the full URL of the XAML/HTML page. That means for this alpha release, two pages that are part of the same application served from the same domain will...
  • Blog Post: MIX07: Silverlight Supports Dynamic Languages (Iron Ruby, Iron Python, JavaScript)

    Josh Holmes has a great summary of the Ray Ozzie / Scott Guthrie keynote yesterday. Towards the end of his post, Josh notes with shock & awe that Silverlight not only includes a .NET CLR execution environment, but also the Dynamic Language Runtime as well. Yes, it's true! You can write apps for Silverlight...

  • Blog Post: MIX07: Social Mixing

    I bumped into Anders Hejlsberg in the speaker's lounge this afternoon just before my 4:30 presentation. He was at Mix to talk about LINQ , and probably on hand to provide Silverlight air cover. He asked how things were going now that I had a full year under my belt at Microsoft. My reply was to show...

    Soundbyte streams from the MIX07 keynote, live and raw: Ray Ozzie on platforms, emergence of rich web apps doesn't mean stand-alone client apps are going away.

  • Blog Post: 2007 Events Calendar

    Techie events are a mixed bag. Some are actually fun to attend, while others are more like work on a stick. Here are a few picks and pans for 2007. GDC07 March 5 - 9 San Francisco The Game Developers Conference is an entertaining booth crawl for the same reason gaming conventions are fun - you see glimpses...
  • Blog Post: TechEd Barcelona Wrap-up

    I figured out why I hadn't been able to find Nikhil in the speakers lounge to chat about client-side web app bits - he wasn't in Barcelona! He had to cancel due to illness (he's much better now). Jeff Prosise graciously offered to cover Nikhil's TechEd talks. After the conference day was done, the...

    Ok, so I'm running out of clever headlines. Nikhil Kothari 's AJAX scripting talk was filled to the brim, so I headed over to Steve Teixeira 's C++ roadmap session. In transit, I crossed paths with the three Dutch amigos (who took me trekking across downtown Barcelona last night in search of beer...

    Mashup Camp brought together some 400 people interested in developing web applications quickly by combining mutiple data sources or services in interesting ways.
