Want to guest host for Channel 9 at Mix?

Back to Forum: Coffeehouse

    Hey, people.

    I'm really happy with how the Scott Hanselman interviews turned out (watch the first one).

    I look for ways to include people from the community. I figure you all do a lot for Microsoft simply because you want to, and you deserve screen time.

    If you want it, and if you're going to be at Mix, leave a comment here and let me know what you might like to do.

    Getting the info this far ahead of time will make it easier to schedule the interviews.

    Also, I can't promise that I can get you on as a guest host, but we can certainly try Smiley

    Actually, if he wants to be a guest host, I'd totally love it.

    That said, I seriously doubt he'd be willing to come on.

    Beer28 agreed to be on 9 at one point, and it seemed like it was actually going to happen.

    At the last minute, he started in with his requirements - a long list of outrageous demands, most of which would have contributed toward creating the most uncomfortable and unnatural 9 video ever.

    But if sirhomer wants to be on, and if he doesn't have the same list (of excuses) as Beer28, then he'd be quite welcome.

    I want to interview Ray Ozzie, he knows me...

  • AdamKinney

    oh!  me, me, me :o

  • Charles

    A Niner interviewing Ray. I like it!

    Adam, we need to get you on camera more. Smiley

    Great idea, Rory!

    Which of the 9ers has the best dossier? Big Smile

    Just out of curiosity was his demands.  I need a good laugh after the clusterf*&%ck of a day I just had.

    Instead of listing his demands, I should just write a certain post about him I've been meaning to write for a while.

    If you want something entertaining, then - trust me - I can get you something much better than that list Smiley

    It's going to take some time to get the post right, but I have all the materials I need, so... maybe it'll happen.

    I believe he wanted to talk about the DoJ cases.

    C9 may not have a PR filter, but they definitely have a legal filter.

    It wouldn't just be uncomfortable, it'd be impossible.

    what? Scott Hanselman? How long this guy sleep? He must have so much free time. Rory, can it be done remotely? I mean, someone co-hosted somewhere in the other side of the world. I hope it is not Scott again this time. Tongue Out

  • Glucose

    Actually that remote idea is a good one. Why not carry a laptop around with a full-screen video of the hosts face? Maybe roll them around as a robot...

    I seem to remember him wanting to discuss the anti-trust lawsuits for one.

    Hey Rory; get Jeff to give you enough budget to come to DDD5 at MS UK Smiley

    Now thats a brilliant idea!

    Infact Barry we could just do it ourselves and then send it over to C9, you guys can stick it through your legal channels then put it up!

    Dude, please don't take this the wrong way - but don't.  He's had enough attention, he's been discussed at length on hundreds of occassions, and I don't think it is constructive.  Funny maybe, but constructive - no.

    Let's not let a single, admittedly profilic, troll define C9.

    In my life, funny trumps constructive.

    Sure, the guy's had a lot of attention, but not like this.

    I have quite the story to tell. I've been sitting on it because I have very little time to write nowadays, but I want to tell it.

    So I will.
