Wow, first post in a long time, and the first in 2006! Since switching teams back in November, I have been settling down into my new team and was then on vacation for a while, so didn't get a chance to post. Well, we have a bunch of cool stuff coming up this year in MSN Search, so I hope to blog about it as and when we launch something exciting! There should be some fun stuff as early as in the next couple of months, as folks who were at Search Champs may already know.
Anyway, I have been really enjoying watching some great videos on Channel 9. Inspite of being on the 'inside' in Microsoft, the company being so large, one rarely knows much about what's going on elsewhere in the division, let alone in other divisions. It is great to get an insight into what's happening around the company, and more importantly, the people behind it all.
Here are some of my favorite picks, the ones I enjoyed the most (and there are so many that I haven't viewed, so maybe there are some I will like even more!):
Which reminds me, I happened to run into Robert Scoble briefly at Search Champs the other day. For a moment, it felt like running into a colleague or close acquaintance. Then it struck me that I had never actually met him before, nor even exchanged emails for that matter! It is interesting how the blogosphere can bring out a sense of familiarity.
Anyway, thanks Robert, Charles Torre and other folks on Channel 9 for bringing us these awesome videos!
P.S.> By the way, I have made a brief appearance on Channel 9 too :-) And here is a video about MSN Search, my current team.
