PDC2008 Finale

From Tom Warren of Neowin, posted a fun video demonstrating different applications on the surface units: Microsoft Surfaces at PDC. I thought the video was more interesting than a Microsoft professional presentation because it illustrated how easy the Microsoft Surfaces appears to be to use.

Long Zheng of I Started Something has been very busy both photographing and documenting at PDC2008. Just two examples are these recent articles:
Long Zheng has a lot more at I Started Something.

The best way to locate all of the material Paul Thurrott has provided at the SuperSite for Windows is to click on the Windows 7 tab. Paul has accumulated a wealth of material already.

From Microsoft PressPass:
PDC2008: Microsoft Research Reveals Future of Surface, Robotics, Platforms

Microsoft Research Senior Vice President Rick Rashid details new development tools and innovations, including tiny sensors used to regulate energy consumption, and SecondLight, a new rear-projection Surface technology.

I was excited because the Keynotes were scheduled during my lunch break here in the Eastern Time Zone. Unfortunately, live streaming is apparently blocked by the Corporate firewall. Fortunately, I was able to get a taste of what was going on thanks to the "All-Star Bloggers" (listed below). If you follow Microsoft products and development, I expect they are on your "must read" list.

Thank you, Guys and Mary-Jo!

May the wind sing to you and the sun rise in your heart...
