  • Blog Post: Building the PDC keynote

    Video: PDC 2008 Timelapse Just noticed this fun video from James Senior that shows a time-lapse of assembly and breakdown of the keynote room. 6 minutes of work for a few hours of keynotes. Well, more than 6 minutes but you know what I mean…
  • Blog Post: Killer Live Mesh Demos at PDC

      I agree with James that Jeremy Mazner’s session at PDC was one of the best – certainly the best I attended outside of the keynotes. I met Jeremy back when he worked on Tahoe (aka SharePoint) and he’s always delivered great sessions with great demo and humour. In this one he showed the potential...
  • Blog Post: Microsoft 3.0

    What I believe you actually saw last week at the PDC, if you looked carefully, was Microsoft 3.0   The dust is now settling on PDC 2008 and more measured commentary is arriving .

  • Blog Post: The Standard Has Your Back

    Final few hours in LA – I’m hitting Santa Monica for the last hours of sun in the City of Angels. If I’m ever back I’ll stay at The Standard again.

  • Blog Post: The Blue Monster has a great 2nd birthday in LA

    [Blue Monster PDC edition]   The PDC is winding down and it’s been a hell of a week. A week of so many coincidences for me. For a birthday week it’s been incredibly memorable. 5 years ago I was at PDC and also had my birthday here – I had dinner in the same place this week and even got a cocktail...
  • Blog Post: A Platform for the Next Technology Revolution

    Steve Ballmer lays out our Software plus Services announcements and ambitions in an executive email titled A Platform for the Next Technology Revolution .

    I’m delighted to see Windows Azure on the BBC News Homepage today – hats off to my pal James Tutt and some fine work by Rory Cellan- Jones . They have one more trick up their sleeve I believe.

  • Blog Post: My Long Wait Is Over: Azure is here

    Was it worth the wait? Well for me it was a weird morning…I went to sleep at 02:30 after writing a long email that goes out of out worldwide General Managers and a number of other people inside the business. The timing was crucial and I was editing at the last minute in the keynote room. We got it out...

      Finally, no more Red Dog…. Windows Azure is here and so is the Azure Services Platform
  • Blog Post: Clearing Clouds

    Tim O’Reilly sits atop Techmeme at the moment with his post on Web 2.0 and Cloud Computing . It reminded me of Andreessen on Platforms from just over a year ago. Good to see my old pal Hugh involved in this debate too as he often brings some sanity in a world of geekdom – though other times I think he...
  • Blog Post: Clouds On The Horizon at PDC 2008

    I landed in Los Angeles yesterday afternoon with huge excitement about next weeks PDC.

After next week that’ll all change as...
