    It seems to me like cambridge is where Microsoft puts all the smartest people, but a few of them(Erik Meijer, Anders H, etc).

    How many men vs. women is there, Charles?

    I don't know the gender breakdown, but it seemed to me that there are many more men than women... You will meet one of these women (a mathematician) in an upcoming interview from Cambridge. Computer Science is dominated by males of the species, but this will change over time.

    Great interviews, are there any videos coming where we "go deep" (white board, demos, etc) with some of the researchers?

    Nope.
    I guess it would be hard to do that sort of thing without exposing company secrets..

    Great videos regardless Smiley

    Well, it was more of a time thing. These interviews are all high level, but you will see researchers at the white board in the future. We love MSR and plan on spending more time with our in-house academics Smiley
