Jacqueline Russell was a key player in both getting Microsoft ready to take part in a grass roots event like Maker Faire and successfully pulling it off. Here, Charles and Michael Lehman catch up with her at the faire and have a brief chat about why MS is so excited to take part in a non-product oriented enthusiast event like Maker Faire.

      Having the express products to build your own small apps at Maker faire was a really cool idea.

      I like how Microsoft is targeting nondevelopers with the express products and more generally talking about how people can be creative with software.

      Jacqueline, I realy liked your article on april fools pranks.

      I like the coding4fun articles a lot, I liked the Puck the pirate howto series too; I need more - and more step by step lessons that take ~40 minutes would be very nice.

      ... I think I speak for the majority of the channel9 visitors when I say please make Jacqueline a member of the channel9 video team... Embarassed

      Looks like she was doing a little flirting with Charles.  Charles is da man.  If you wantch the video at the end she gives Charles that "Hey" look
