Video interviews of many of the MIX07 speakers are posted up on Channel 9.  I think most of these were filmed before MIX and released during the event.  Koji and I were interviewed by Catherine Heller here.   This post was originally published on my MSDN blog while I was at Microsoft.

MIX07: POST/GET/PUT/DELETE Your Way To Windows Live Data

Martin Heller posted an article on Infoworld, “Data Wants To Be Free,” about the Windows Live Data “secret session” at MIX07.  The Windows Live Data service (probably not its final name) enables a deeper level of integration and data access than the devlive web controls, but still maintains user control over access to user data. The Windows […]

MIX07: Extending the Browser Programming Model with Silverlight

Silverlight implements isolated local storage on the client.  Currently in the Alpha, the storage is limited to 1MB per web application and is keyed to the full URL of the XAML/HTML page.  That means for this alpha release, two pages that are part of the same application served from the same domain will have separate isolated […]

MIX07: Bat Signals and Five Minute Field Ops Centers

I apologize for cutting short my live/raw soundbyte blog post on the MIX07 keynote yesterday.  I was literally called out of the keynote (audience) to fix an issue caused by a server update-in-progress back at the office. IM’s went out to the team at MIX (the “bat signal” reference) to convene in Koji’s hotel room, pronto.  Save […]

MIX07: Silverlight Supports Dynamic Languages (Iron Ruby, Iron Python, JavaScript)

Josh Holmes has a great summary of the Ray Ozzie / Scott Guthrie keynote yesterday.  Towards the end of his post, Josh notes with shock & awe that Silverlight not only includes a .NET CLR execution environment, but also the Dynamic Language Runtime as well.  Yes, it’s true!  You can write apps for Silverlight using […]

MIX07: Social Mixing

I bumped into Anders Hejlsberg in the speaker’s lounge this afternoon just before my 4:30 presentation.  He was at Mix to talk about LINQ, and probably on hand to provide Silverlight air cover.  He asked how things were going now that I had a full year under my belt at Microsoft.  My reply was to […]

MIX07 Keynote: Silverlight With Cross-Platform .NET Runtime

Soundbyte streams from the MIX07 keynote, live and raw: Ray Ozzie on platforms, emergence of rich web apps doesn’t mean stand-alone client apps are going away.  Some apps are best viewed as services with client component, other apps are best viewed as client apps with server components. Shrink wrap isn’t going away, but is likely […]
