Jim Allchin is a wise man. I'm glad to be a 9er and I believe in transparency also -- I think it is something that will help change our culture's landscape in a myriad of ways, and it's on a logarithmic curve right now.
Oracle picked the most widely used Enterprise Linux distro with Redhat. That makes sense.
1) Aliens don't exist, regardless of their introversion, the 'Prime Objective' & unexplained cow mutilations.
2) Users will always demand OS choices. It is part of personal identity.
3) Cloning & enslaving one's self is unethical; pace-maker? Adam is scarey. Pair programming with one's self... LOL.
4) How to make money with internet video? Team up with content providers like Time-Warner, Sony, Viacom, etc., which is exactly what Google is doing after buying you-tube. It is inevitable this will make tons of money, and there will be commercials to foot
the bill just like today.
5) Implicit, evolved topic, DRM. It is essential and necessary. I was dismayed in 1994 to personally watch OS2 Warp become available in Irkutsk, Siberia, before it was available as a retail product in the USA or anywhere else. Sickening. DRM may help stop pirating
intellectual and artistic property worldwide and that is very long overdue. I'm glad Vista will support is so well.
Whoa, where did the echo come from 52 minutes in?? Cleared up at 53:58... eeeccchh.
Brad, Jason, Adam, & Brett, thanks!
Rory, I suggest a single-purpose topic and interviewees who are motivated and prepared to discuss.
My pick? Agile development and how to adopt it. Peter & Brad...
::Brad Wilson is an inspiration to me since seeing him write code at the SC-BAT workshop last March.
::I met Adam then, too, and he is very personable, but I never got to see him write code...
