Description

Picture this: It's a sunny Friday a little after lunch, and you're dreading the hike back to your desk and the piles of work that scared you towards the solice of your burrito in the first place. Typically this is the most depressing moment in a day at Microsoft. Once in a while though there's a glimmer of hope. Recently that glimmer took the form of Phil Torrone and Make Magazine presenting to anyone on the MS campus! Settle in and watch Phil spin a web of homebrew madness...

    with the idea of posting new content 'on 10'? He's using a Mac... talk about the lion's den.

    The longer I am watching this segment, the more mesmerized I'm becoming by the size of his Mac. That Mac is so big it should come with supersized fries. I think I may be starting to suffer from Mac-envy. I am certainly harboring feelings of inadequacy from the sheer gigantitude of that Mac.

    Not sure if I understand your question about "with the idea of posting new content" on 10?  What are you trying to ask?

    Y'all used to post content at 10am Pacific. That's what I thought the whole concept of 'On 10'' was. Did that change and I just missed it?

    So those rooms have awesome cameras in the back. So why is this recorded with a handheld? Smiley

    I've got a handful of questions that should explain my choice to go handheld:

    1-Where/how do I get permission to use those cameras?
    2-What format do they record to and how do I easily edit and publish that?
    3-If I'm publishing a 320x240 web video, is it worth using professional equipment?

    Handheld is quicker, cheaper, and ultimately easier.

    PT awesome slides.  Let me ask something...  Fighting is great.  But do you or Jesse feel the world is ready for...
     
                                                A Roomband!

    Fighting will always take us back to that most basic competitive nature.  Gotcha, Tag-you're-it, frag, etc.  But is it time as a species to pass on what we have learned to the younger species among us?  As our robot children grow, should we show them a more well rounded cultured world?

     If not, should we at least teach them to rock out?

    I propose a Roomband!

    Sure they could probably compose sweeter music than we ever thought possible with their dust-suck abilities, but here's the real question dude...Who would sing?

    1. Talk to the MS Conference Center. They can set it up.
    2. Well, they broadcast in WMV/ASX so I would imagine you could get a WMV version. Additionally, I am sure you could get it in about any format you would want.
    3. Yes. Smiley Since they have the right Angle setup already to get both the screen as well as the speaker. (Or you can change it since they are remote controlled as well.)

    4. I agree with you in that regard completly, but there is a reason MSAV has installed the equipment, why not use it. Smiley
