Hands-on with the Microsoft Surface
On Wednesday, I attended CloudCamp, an unconference focused on cloud computing. The event was held at Microsoft's beautiful new research facility in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The event feature a number of "cloud vendors" (Microsoft, EMC Atmos, Rackspace (Slicehost), UNISYS, Right Scale, Intuit, Signiant, and Iron Mountain), some analysts, a handful of end-users (like me), and one other academic (again like me). I'll share some thoughts on the event in a future post, but here's some video of the MS Surface. I've removed the sound, because there was a lot of background noise.
