Phone interview with Jon Udell


Jon Udell called me up a week or two ago and asked me a bunch of questions about web history, IE and the HTML WG.  I think it’s actually broadly interesting, and for once I don’t sound like a third grader on speed.  Well, too much.


Check it out.

  1. Mr Wilson,

    I’ve been trying to reach you or Mr David Massy. Please visit my IE7 bugs webpage (bug item #42) and, in particular, this page:

    http://www.gtalbot.org/BrowserBugsSection/MSIE7Bugs/InfiniteLoopIE7.html

    P.S.: I have no idea how to report IE7 bugs to IE dev. team <sigh> <grumble>

    Gérard,

    As posted on my old work blog at

    http://blogs.msdn.com/dmassy I recently left Microsoft so cannot directly assist you.

    I did quickly follow the link you posted on my vista machine at home though and do not repro a 100% CPU usage at all. That isn’t to say there isn’t an issue but clearly it shows that a lot of these issues are not always easy to repro.

    The support mechanisms outlined at http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/winfamily/ie/iefaq.mspx are as always the best way to report issues. It’s always a really good idea to explain exactly why you think an issue is "serious" as well rather than just stating it is :). A good justification will always help the team in evaluating issues.

    Thanks

    -Dave

    Wow… I did not know that. I wish you the best in your endeavours, personal life adventure.

    I will follow up on this.

    Thank you for your time. This is very much appreciated. And please, Mr Massy, always remember that there is a guy who has quoted you in his webpage, even considering you as a world renowned person 🙂
