  • Andy Edmonds and Erik Selberg - Frank talk about MSN Search

    Scoble - that would be a great idea - so far the only thing that's come out of MSoft on the search side that's impressed me has been Selberg's work, and the Virtual Earth team has impressed me as well.

    I'm sure there's got to be some other impressive people over there... ???

    Finally - we had to wait forever for this one Smiley

    Lots of good stuff to watch over and over - if anyone wants to learn about some interesting search topics like aggregation and query expansion, check out one of Erik's papers on his site.

    He created the Metacrawler btw which is what InfoSpace is based on (before the mobile stuff came around) - alot of the InfoSpace guys worked for him, and man - is it depressing over there.  Probably because they can't go work for MSN.

    Subscribe to the most interesting MS blog imho Smiley over at www.selberg.org my favorite feed other than dilbert

    Did anyone else think it was hilarious when that guy freaked out when Scoble got too close to the memory bits?

    Excellent video!  I must go visit this museum someday!


    Yeah totally - I thought he was joking but when the dude totally flipped out -- I was eating dinner and inhaled some habenaro sauce - it keeps getting funnier every time I watch that

    If I remember the story right, the computer sat in a field in some guy's back yard and his kid used it for target practice.


    I was thinking either the engineer flipped out, or it was some sort of CIA computer assasination (or whatever the cia was called back then Tongue Out)

    If there was another pass through the museum, it would be incredible to see what types of problems all these machines were solving... when that becomes declassified that is
  • Gordon Bell - Tour of the Computer History Museum, Part II

    One of the most beautiful and hideous things about this museum is this -

    Why where these systems built?  what purpose did they hold?

    I'm terribly influenced by The New Industrial State by John Kenneth Galbraith - and when I'm looking at these videos, I see that these systems were underwritten sometimes by big business, but mostly by the coldwar...

    I can hardly think of the coldwar as being something good until I see some of these - that kind of risk - just to have a microsoft/sun/apple today -

    That's what they were built for, and the public underwrote the cost of these enormous machines - by one thing.  Nuclear threat.

    Scoble, you are the cruelest guy I know!  Right at the coolest part, where you're talking about a couple of people actually programming on it, the video stops,

    I can't wait to see part II

    Awesome video Scoble - I'd say this one is my favorite, but I have so many favorites
  • Rob Lefferts - Sharepoint Services and Workflow

    awesome video, thanks!
  • Rob Lefferts - Sharepoint Services and Workflow

    Hey Scoble, that video is about the sidebar, not Sharepoint - where's that sharepoint video at?
  • Mark Law - Virtual Earth Hacks

    those guys are awesome!  They pulled that off in a week, very impressive.  Keep it up!
  • Ian Dixon (and others) - Microsoft Home in London, UK

    was that a real mirror?
  • Marc McDonald - Microsoft's First Employee

    McDonald - I GOTTA meat you! I'm working on a high level assembly compiler right now, I'll be in Redmond next week, and hopefully for good in about a month - I need to figure out how to get assembly into hex - into machine code - and I'm stuck.

    I have about a million things I want to talk to you about, so when I'm in redmond, I hope I get the chance Smiley well, I imagine your on main campus so it can't be that far if we hooked up!

    will my questions ever get answered?  How do I find this stuff out!  I'm reading the Art of Assembly, hoping some get answered there - but I want to hear about those assemblers  - that was insane - I had to watch the video about 5 times just to get a fraction of what was going on.
