In the better late than never department, a video interview with Koji and me from the week prior to MIX07 is now posted on Channel 9: http://channel9.msdn.com/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=317385 Yay! Thanks Catherine for pushing it on through. Originally published on my MSDN blog.
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.
