I recently had the pleasure of interviewing SharePoint MVP Shane Young on The Water Cooler show on Channel9. This was a really fun interview, as Shane is pretty animated. Mr. Young is the owner of SharePoint911.com, a consulting company that focuses on SharePoint. Beyond the entertainment value in this video (I mean really, where else are you going to hear awful cow jokes in a technical interview?), we learn a few valuable things in the interview as well. For instance, Shane throws on the Carnak the Magnificant hat and tells the audience what their performance issues with SharePoint are and provides a few tips on how to tune your environment for better performance. We also learn about the right and wrong way to install SharePoint, and discuss the drawbacks for using the Basic Install option.

Really useful interview. Because I tried to follow Shane on twitter I noticed that the link to Shanes twitter profile results in 404 error page.
