This Week on Channel 9

Back to Forum: Coffeehouse
  • jeffsand

    We released a special edition of This Week on Channel 9 today. As requested (thanks Minh) in this edition, we talked through our survey results and our plans for how we will adjust based on the feedback.

    It is a long video (60 minutes, sorry), but I think it does a good job explaining where we want to head with Channel 9 in the future.

    Thanks again everyone for all the support!

    Thanks for featuring my comment regarding the "dilemma of choosing a community" and look forward to all the changes you'll be implementing. Sounds like very much a big step in the right direction. Smiley

    Nice.

    Nice overview of what we can expect. Moving 10 to 9 is a good thing. I sometimes visit 10, but not as much as I'd like to. I'm a niner, not a tenner Wink

    Honestly I visited a few times, but was quickly turned off by the personality of those girls on the 10 videos.  The energy is way too far to the bouncy side and not enough to the "this is cool stuff" side... IMHO...

    Those girls are already on Channel 9: Tina presents the awesome “History of Microsoft” series, and Laura and Max (one of the girls Wink) host “Ping”.

    This  9 Revolution is a big deal, why isn't it on the C9 blog yet?

    good catch. we thought the video stood on its own, but I think we should have something in text.  I'll put something up sometime over the weekend.

    That would be good, because I've watched the video and still have trouble grasping what exactly the revolution entails apart from merging certain C10, C8, and C4F content into Channel 9. I could watch the video again, but that would mean another hour. Some text summary would be nice.

    As I mentioned in the video in the coming weeks, we'll go deeper with you all on the user experience, what we'll be doing on content and more.

    Fun times. Viva Channel 9!

    Jeff,

    I hope that you get to do what you say you want to do. What I mean is that today's message is consistent with that in the "Who are we?" video. I don't think you wanted to deliver a sub-par product prior to and during the C9V4 roll-out. But you definitely did. The site is blazing fast today, though. I'm very impressed.

    Duncan,

    You give me too much credit on the feedbacks. Certainly there were many other Niners who gave helpful feedbacks.

    Interesting point Minh. In thinking back to filming last week, it did feel a lot like the original Who We Are video where we framed what we wanted to create with Channel 9. There has been a lot of good and fair feedback from plenty of people over the years, some that we've gotten to, others not.

    We're hoping that by focussing much more on Channel 9 as a single place, it will allow us to incorporate much more of that same feedback. Also this sam focus is a key contributor to how we were able to improve the performance of the site . We will continue to do work on reliability/performance so that we have a solid foundation for the new release.

    In a couple of weeks we'll do a deep dive around the UX / Wireframes with Nishant (we're looking to do this the week of July 20) that should help explain more.

    But, for now we wanted to get out in front of it with you all and explain where we're headed so that we don't catch folks by surprise.
