It's been way too long since Dare Obasanjo (of RSS Bandit and Carnage4Life fame) has appeared on C9. The last time was several years ago in an interview conducted by me and Scoble on a summer day outside of building 35 on the main MS campus in Redmond. What's Dare been up to since we last spoke? Turns out, quite a bit Dare works on the Live SDK team. They recently shipped the SkyDrive API. If you're not familiar with SkyDrive, it's a cloud-based personal file storage service, allowing users access to any file, anytime, anywhere... (we talk about what exactly that means and how it works in this conversation).
Here we catch up and geek out a bit on SkyDrive (from a developer and consumer's perspective, with an emphasis on the former, of course), web programming, personal file storage solutions (how do you design a SkyDrive?), the difference between SkyDrive and traditional (local) storage solutions, when to use SkyDrive verus Azure storage, and of course the SkyDrive API.
Tune in. Enjoy. Welcome back to C9, Dare. We'll come see you again!
