Got a very warm welcome back at Microsoft yesterday. Hung out with some of the top Windows Vista folks, was over at the Tablet PC team hearing about their latest UMPCs, spent a fun hour with Buzz interviewing the Windows Quality team (the folks who get your reports after your computer crashes), then hung out with the MindCamp folks for a fun party and dinner.
Today is just as packed in. Interviewing the Zune team, getting a tour of Research, before heading over to Pioneer Square to see some startups (Pluggd is first on list) before heading to University of Washington (Keene Hall) to interview Woz in front of an audience of hundreds of people tonight.
Anyway, I got an interview with Joe Kraus, CEO of JotSpot up (he was also a founder of Excite at Home, so he’s seen the ups and downs of Silicon Valley).
I’m sorry about only having one microphone so you can’t hear my questions very well. I have several more interviews I did that way, but now I have a second microphone so in the future this problem goes away.
