This was my first experience at Microsoft's annual TechFest Event
"TechFest is an annual event that brings researchers from Microsoft Research’s labs around the world to Redmond to share their latest work with Microsoft product teams. Attendees experience some of the freshest, most innovative technologies emerging from Microsoft’s research efforts. The event provides a forum in which product teams and researchers can discuss the novel work occurring in the labs, thereby encouraging effective technology transfer into Microsoft products."
It was an opportunity to totally geek out on some really cool technology and an an absolutely fantastic chance to peek into what the future of computing holds for us. I am simply amazed at the amount of cool stuff that is out there. Ofcourse, I cant talk about many of the projects on display at TechFest 2009 but here are a few public videos you should definitely check out! A quick shout out for GeoLife 2.0 and Social Desktop among the ones (publicly available) that might be of interest to the social media community:
