Channel 9 still rocks: Brian Beckman is a smart dude

I occassionally have been checking in on Channel 9. I’m still a Niner. Anyway, I’m listing to this video with Brian Beckman. That guy is a smart mofo. One of the first guys to join Microsoft Research.

I have dreams of getting videos like this inside eBay. Google. Yahoo. Sun. Cisco. Apple. Intel. AMD. Nvidia. etc.

  1. Hi. Yes, he’s very smart. Frankly, I am not a
    fan of Microsoft and I always thought of this
    company as a… well… a big evil empire.
    I discovered your blog and Channel 9 a few weeks
    ago and they absolutely changed my mind. Esp.
    this video… plus the one with Bill Hill. It
    must be great to work at a company where you
    can work with such smart guys.

    By the way, I think this is something you could
    add to your “how to save MS list”: show the
    world that it’s a smart company.

  3. Someone at Intel was trying to do a Channel nine thing recently, not sure where that landed. Lots of restructure thrash going on right now…

    Q: What’s an 09er?
    A: Finally, a question I can actually answer. The wealthy residents of Neptune all live in the prestigious 90909 zip code; the non-rich peons do not. Hence, all the rich kids at Neptune High are nicknamed 09ers. And the 90909 is a fake zip code, so don’t even bother trying to find it on a map.
