View Thread: The Guardian (UK) Snippet on Channel 9
  • User profile image

    I've scanned the little article on Channel 9 for anyone who's interested...good to see this place getting some column inches Wink:

    Meet Microsoft
    “How therapeutic would it be for people to meet us?” That was the question posed by five Microsoft developers in setting up their new home for holding conversations customers and other developers: Channel 9. Perhaps the best place start looking at this site is the video of the five guys in question shooting the breeze about what they want Channel 9 to be. It’s all a tad forced but it could be an interesting forum.

    It’s impressive that Microsoft has given its employees what appears be such a free hand, and Channel a truly multimedia affair, featuring videos of interviews with other Microsoft workers, wikis, moblogs and discussion boards all playing a part in building a conversation with users. Whether the site will prove just little too worthy for Microsoft users to really let rip with their true feelings, only time will tell.
