TechFest 2007, an annual showcase for projects at Microsoft Research, kicked off yesterday. This is great timing for me as I started this week at Live Labs and can jump start forming a map of research and innovation here at Microsoft.
Contrary to popular belief, I don't expect that working for Microsoft is going to really impact the content of this blog. In the case of TechFest, this is to some extent a press event (today was the press day), so once I figure out the exact guidelines I'll probably write something about it. Having heard about a few of the projects on display, I'm certainly psyched to attend.
