Interesting post, very good watch. Pity we didn't get to see Alex Ionescou on camera as well. I recommend everyone take some time and read about ReactOS or maybe download a build of it. Alex has made some pretty massive contributions to that project which
may explain why David has hired this early-20's dev to lecture MS people on the internals of Windows.
Just watching video now, 1 comment from Charles around 12 mins in went something like
"things worked in IE but didn't work in Netscape, isn't that cos you guys always innovated HTML and the platform"
I think that is a little disingenious to the Netscape guys, 1 reason that it also may have worked so well on IE and not other platforms was because IE didn't stick to strict standards and in doing so hurt how well other platforms could render stuff that had
been developed with IE primarily in mind.
Interesting discussion so far though, going to watch rest of it now, also enjoyed discussion around programming in Secondary schools and the Logo program (That is the the name of the turtle thing in UK/Ireland)
The first half hour of the video was interesting and Ori is a good speaker who seems really enthused about his work.
The last 20 mins of demo time was really amazing, I think this opens up tonnes of opportunities as a developer but as an end-user I can think of even more real world get it going today right now kinda scenarious. Move over skydrive and get Mesh out there as
quickly as possible.
Really good video. Didn't agree with everything he said but good watch, and for the record, not all CS graduates want to forget about their compiler classes as soon as they leave college, it is the most interesting module I have taken to date.
Yeah, the 30 minutes was an achievement, but I must admit this stretched my April Fool's good humour to the limit, 30 minutes of listening to the WMA and then it is an April Fool's. Funny, which is why I didn't do the first post warning others it was an
April Fool's, but just a little too long and too much time wasted for comfort...
I didn't actually have time to watch the video so I grabbed the WMA and just listened to it. I thought it was a great interview, all three were very interesting to listen to and Charles' questions led the conversation as exactly the right pace. It wasn't
technical but you could guess that from the title and the people involved.
Great interview, Soma as always was good to listen to, he just seems so passionate about what he does.
