Ted’s excellent Office Dev videos

Ted Pattison was one of the highest rated speakers at the VSLive's that I used to help plan back in the 1990s. Nice to see that he's moved his work to the Web with a new Office 2007 show on Channel 9 — new screencasts will be released soon, most of which are centered on Office 2007.

  1. I love this format – ironically, it illustrates perfectly what Eric Schmidt recently described as the importance of information destination sites. He put it this way: “The next generation of technology ‘leaps’ will come from the fact that people are always online, always connected, always communicating, and always sharing information. It’s not going to be ‘books,’ it’s going to be small pieces of information: a video, an alert, an email –all of that together will drive the community and it will do it with tremendous speed. The acceleration in this is going to be breathtaking.” This time-release method of providing training is really a terrific help to the community – much like Oreilly’s latest “rough cuts” series. Immediacy trumps comprehensiveness, in my book. Thanks for the pointer, Robert.
