Channel 9 is a new way for Microsoft to communicate with the developer community in a human voice and to share another side of Microsoft. On a daily basis it will feature an inside glimpse into the platforms and products, and the company behind them. Taking it a step further we give the community a chance to interact, share their ideas, and help us build a better Microsoft. Channel 9 combines video, RSS, forums, and Wikis together in a single resource to bring many facets of the conversation together under one roof.
As an Aussie, I find this a rather unfortunate name, as it is associated with the largest television network here in Australia (and associated online properties).
I love the concept. I really like the site, but the name leaves a lot to be desired
