It’s time for another episode of The Signal. This week, we respond to a listener call about what traditional developers can expect at MIX08, and Thomas talks to Mike about his seam carving project called SEAMonster. Then, we hear from Robert Hess (who you may recognize from The .NET Show). Robert has been doing keynote demos for over 19 years and has a lot to share about what it takes to make them happen. Along the way, he touches on topics like: why the demoer may know too much, what we can learn from Mark Twain, the hardware behind the stage, Bill Gates, the VB demo, and an 8-day workweek, what to do when 5 blocks of internet access goes down, and his alter-ego at DrinkBoy.com. Oh…and why Robert uses a dial-up modem. You don’t want to miss this.
