    I wish a little more time could have been spent on getting to know her as a human being like what are her hobbies, what kind of art/ music she likes, what kinds of books she reads, who have influenced her most in  life, what's her philosophy of life, etc., etc.

    Most of the channel 9 speakers aren't as interesting or candid speakers as Emma is.  One of my favorite shows.

    A really nice video!

    Good to see how Microsoft evaluates their development process and keeps improving it. 

    Looking forward to the final version of Orcas!

    I'm not much of a conspiracy theorist but did anyone else notice the edit at 26:37, between "Silverlight, and ..." "some other things"?

    And, what MS?

    I made an edit to remove a reference to a product you don't know about yet (and you shouldn't...).

    No conspiracies here....

    Very interesting - I'm not sure if it was in the video, if it was I missed it, but what does MQ actuallystand for?

    She has a really interesting accent... It sounds like a mix of Australian, English and American.

    Speaking as a proper engineer, it's great to hear that software development is being approached in a more organised and structured way.  Seems like MQ delivered good things, lets hope it goes on to do so for more product teams.  I never bought the whole idea that software can't be engineered anyway.  It just can't be engineered by disorganised hermits who wash once a month and have forgotten how to speak.

    It's refreshing to hear anyone speak who is obviously intelligent and insightful and able to put ideas over in such a clear, precise and well considered way.  It's even nicer that all those inspirational qualities are in the form of a lovely Irish lady! Clearly not a disorganised unwashed hairy hermit, and good for her.


    Cheers for the vid.
