Hello! I'm Joshua Allen, evangelist at Microsoft, and your host for MIX Online. You can contact me for anything related to MIX Online by e-mailing me at joshua.allen (at) As an evangelist, I've specialized in web browsers, RSS, and microformats. During my time at Microsoft I have been PM working on Netdocs, SQLXML, XML APIs, Micropayments, the unofficial semantic web agitator and some other things. I've also helped many customers with web scalability and data mining. I am always looking for cool new ideas, companies, and demos about next generation web technologies.
