Some Reflections on PDC 2008 - Must Watch Sessions (Day 3)
The keynote from Microsoft Research. While it's all kind of interesting, I'd draw your attention to these demos:
- Skip to 35' : Sensors and green IT. Monitoring the environment to understand, predict and improve energy usage
- Skip to 64' : World Wide Telescope
- Skip to 70' : Boku, a graphical based UI with a gaming metaphor to introduce kids to programming. Very cool.
- Skip to 84' : Secondlight. Take Microsoft Surface to a new level (above the surface) and you get this. Watch it. Amazing.
- Daniel would never let me forget it if I didn't recommend his session
- Heard good reports on this one and it was a stunning accomplishment
- No link to this on the PDC site but the video's there. Turn the volume up as Abolade is very softly spoken
- Miguel de Icaza and Mono get a slot at PDC. What next?
