  • Blog Post: SxSW Over! Getting Ready to Leave Austin

    I've just survived my first South by Southwest in Austin. It was a great time - a bit long for me though - I was at the whole festival from March 7-16 (interactive, film, and music).

  • Blog Post: Lou Reed Comments on Digital Media Quality

    "It's making it easier to make things worse." Lou Reed just said this commenting on digital media quaility: MP3s and YouTube at the SxSW keynote. I think that our ability with Silverlight to create great HD-quality experiences can really fill a need within the music world.

  • Blog Post: Mix Lanyard for Zune 8GB

    Last week I was in Las Vegas for Microsoft's annual Mix conference, where, like all conferences, you get a badge and some sort of clip or lanyard.  The Mix team was very smart in making a dual-use lanyard that you could use to hang a Zune 8GB from once the conference is over.  After Mix, I...
