  • Richard Anderson - Interactive teaching with Tablet PCs at University of Washington

    My major was Social Studies (studied to be a high school teacher) and all of my exams in my major were blue book essay exams. In fact most of the time it took multiple blue books to answer the questions. I had one prof that I never finished his exam during the 3 hours that were given, none us of finished on time. Brings back memories

    Frank, What a great comment. If you find your niche that can help your clients out and serve them in a way that says "WOW" you will have customers and a job. Don't over react about silly things.
  • Don McGowan - Technology law at Microsoft (and the software industry)

    I thought this was one of the best video interviews that C9 has done. Great job, Robert. The questions were very interesting. I thought the discussion on the branding and the image of things was great

    I was intrested about Bill's comment on education and software, tailoring it towards the kids needs.

    Now sure i'm not a mathmatician nor do i understand half the buttons on my calculator.  but with software we can tailor a childs education.  Does every child need to learn the same things?  sure it creates a sense of equality (edited out equalness), is a child in year 9 more better off than another child in year 9 where one knows trig and the other doesn't?

    With software we can develop situations where child A wants to learn about the construction business but child B wants to learn about accounting, now does child B need to know pythag and does child A need to know about market rates (don't pick on me for this, i think you all understand where i'm going).

    I know since i learnt pythag about hmm 5 years ago i haven't used it since then.  ok maybe in doing one of your "show us what you can program" exercises but i haven't ever used it since my math GCSE exam.



    We should not tailor all parts of a childs education.  There are some basic things that each student should know.  (I am comming at this from a degree in education)  Each student should know a subset of history, a subset of math, some form of geography, civics, etc.
    However there should be more oportunities for students to study things they want.

  • IE 7: What's new in Beta 2 Preview

    I have seen one issue w/ Sharepoint and posted about it on the Wiki
  • IE 7: What's new in Beta 2 Preview

    I can't really tell the difference between the two checksheets for the IT Pro and for the Developer.  Shouldn't as an IT Pro I be more concerned that applications I use IE to acess still work and render correctly then if a website still works?

    In my view the Developer would be more concerned with this.  Can someone please explain this?

    I think I know what is in the boxes. Smiley  Btw Robert, the office looks cleaner then when my wife and I stopped by
  • John Merrill – First Look at Exchange 12

    Robert,

    Thanks for the great video, it was very interesting to see Exchange 12 and OWA.  Looking forward to it. 

    Was wondering if either you or Joh Merrill or someone from the Exchange could answer the question about Exchange12 and other products requiring 64-bit.  I know it was discussed in a post in the Coffeehouse.  Interesting that it is currently on Slashdot as well.

  • Larry Hryb - First look at Xbox 360 (with the MVPs)

    I heard that Robert does have one pre-ordered, and they are sold out or something.  I know he is going to the Europe launch party.  Maybe he can get his hands on one then?
