steve clayton interview

Video: gapingvoid meets Microsoft

A wee 10-minute video interview I did with Microsoft's Steve Clayton, back at the recent London Girl Geek Dinner.

Some of the stuff we covered you might have read on gapingvoid already. Steve and I seem to be having this long, ongoing conversation at the moment ["Think of it as a Work In Progress, Dah-ling!"], which I for one am really enjoying. Hope he feels the same.

Sorry dudes, I got bored after three minutes and switched off. And that was after trying really hard to stay interested.

You should provide some sort of hook to keep me watching. Tell us what's on the agenda. Have the conversation. Summarise at the end.

In fact, do I even need to watch? With zero visual communication (apart from shifty body-language), wouldn't it be enough just to do an audio podcast? You could get better audio that way, too. People remember the spoken word, phrases and sound-bites. Rarely can we recall a picture in detail. So what's the best way into the mind? C'mon, Hugh, you must've read some Jack Trout!

Thanks for the feedback Mike - to be honest Hugh and I are finding our feet with this kind of stuff so that's all useful input. I have a couple of videos to post soon with the camera on Hugh which I'm pretty sure are more interesting than me :) Consider this video strike 1 - we wondered a while before posting it so hope we can do better next time

nice--the person you choose to interview at a GIRL geek dinner is a MAN.

Cynthia: Almost every reference to those dinners I see on blogs, etc, are male related.. which I thought was funny as well. Then I realized I read male blogs, but still.. :)
