    Cool show guys...Rock on. Wink
  • MinhMinh WOOH!  WOOH!
    ...watching this right now... just wanted to say that the

    "Low res" & iPod versions are of last week's show....

    update:
    For a really good interview on MaryJo's book go to the Windows Weekly podcast # 57

    http://twit.tv/ww57


    Where MaryJo talks to Paul & Leo about MS 2.0.

    (was Dan mentioned in that podcast as well?)
  • Christian Liensbergerlittleguru <3 Seattle
    Awesome episode... and Barney Brian is back on board. Btw. you guys should call one of the niners during your recording. You know like having her/him on the show for a minute or so - would be an interesting thing.
  • Tommy CarlierTommyCarlier Widen your gaze
    Calling niners sounds like a good idea, as long as it doesn't end up like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-jHafp4R4Ho

    Good catch, my bad, updated the links.

    As for Mary Jo on TwiT, I'll have to check it out. I doubt I was mentioned though as Keller and I are below interns:) and the big news at that time was Yahoo+Microsoft.

    LOL @ video. Interesting, I like this idea and yI'd be willing to give it a shot, I need to think through how we do this (technically) as I'm not sure we have a way to put callers through over a loud speaker...perhaps we'll do this using Live Meeting or Messenger?

    What's the right way to do this?

    - Should we do it a la Call for Help where we take folks questions?
    - Get some niners to respond to new announcements (eg: Yahoo + MSFT)
    - Have folks send in pre-recorded (audio or video) comments or questions on a topic?
    - Something else entirely?

    I like the second option the most: get some niners to respond to announcements or stuff like that.

    Also the niner could have a "pick of the week" thing: like the niner pick... could get interesting.

    I'd definitely love to see questions from Niners get answered in this show. There are a lot of questions floating around in the Coffeehouse, but obviously there's not going to be a representative from every single product team scanning the forum and jumping in on a discussion, which means the question is left hanging.

    It would be great if you guys could pick up on some of the stuff that's being wondered about in the forums or something, and seek out somebody from the relevant team for an answer.

    Obviously it couldn't be stuff like "Will this and this be in Windows 7" or "What company are you guys secretly planning to buy now", but perhaps it could be things like "What the hell is up with Ultimate Extras" or "How will IE8 impact the sidebar and development for it".

    For getting niners thoughts, any idea on how to "pick" who should be in? Perhaps just leave a section to read people's comments on stories, niner pick of the week would work too Smiley

    That should be doable given the right expectations and at the very least we can get an official answer from the horse's mouth even if it is likely to be PR/marketing-ish reply...

    You guys will make the PR text sound waaaaay better, I'm sure about that...

    @picking niners: I don't know how this could be done. Perhaps you guys just check for threads that are interesting and pick the niner who wrote them or replied an interesting comment there... I know it's probably a lot of work...

    You could also do a random over the guys who posted a lot in the last weeks...

    Or something completely different.

    Well, exactly. Even if it is a PR response, that's at least marginally more useful than no word at all. The whole Ultimate Extras affair was annoying primarily because nobody simply cared to respond, and we only got the PR-ish answer that we eventually got after a lot of repeated (and public) complaining.
    If that could be sped up simply by one of you guys getting a response from the inside, that'd be worthwhile at least.

    And yeah, for the more controversial stuff, this probably isn't going to yield to many interesting replies, but sometimes there are just questions floating around that a product team simply might not see because they don't happen to be visiting the Coffeehouse. Maybe you guys could be sort of a means of bringing those sorts of things over to the attention of the teams, and ideally, getting a response.

    It must be because we have matching personalities.

    lol that Minute with Minh clip was brilliant.. a small comedy gem

    well you always try get w3bbo back for your own short interview, a one off Big Smile

    I think if you did something similar it should be seeking out someone out at MS who could answer some quick questions to do with stuff you pick out on the forum etc or maybe start a thread each week with questions users want to ask about ..

     or "Coffeehouse Rant of the Week FTW"
     
    that will do aswel... Smiley


    "perhaps we'll do this using Live Meeting or Messenger?"
     
    yeah you got laptops just get some mics out for the interview part

    And keep up that geek explanation voice Dan, should try using it more often its too funny.
  • i love the vid its a good one..
