[fr] Souvent pas facile de voir les jolies choses vidéo qu'on nous met à disposition sur le web. Je me plains un peu.
Stupid user or balkanisation?
I’m listening to a video from LIFT’06. First of all I got a pop-up window which looked like a “go no further, you don’t have what it takes to view this” message. Actually, there’s a RealPlayer link in there. OK, cool. They have a partial podcast of the event, but I can’t open it in iTunes. What a shame!
At LIFT’06, I learnt that part of Robert Scoble‘s job is barging into people’s offices with a camcorder and saying “hi there, what do you do at Microsoft?” So I headed off to Channel9 to try and listen to some. My first impression upon landing on the site, I have to say, was “ew, what a mess! Where do I find Robert’s stuff in there?” OK, I found one: Jenny Lam – Designing Experiences at Microsoft. Click, click. Launches VLC. Doesn’t work 🙁 Quicktime usually works. Ah, damn, Quicktime is an Apple thing, isn’t it?
Yep, I’m running OSX, Firefox, and I’m not exactly a Microsoft fan. I’ve been very positively impressed, though, from what I learnt that Microsoft was doing in the transparency department. Aren’t I precisely the kind of audience Channel9 could be interested in catering to? Make it easy for me, please 🙂
