First, we’ve coordinated a special screening of Gary Hustwit’s new documentary film, Objectified, at MIX09 in Las Vegas! We’ll be showing it only days after its world premiere at the South by Southwest Film Festival in Austin, Texas, and Gary will be on-hand for some Q&A after the film. I’m a huge fan of Helvetica, and I’m looking forward to his new documentary about industrial design and the creative process. Watch the trailer for a sneak peak, and be sure to subscribe to the Objectified newsletter for the latest news. And yes, I love the T-shirt!
Next, you’ll want to spend 18 minutes watching Charles Torre’s latest interview with Scott Guthrie where he talks about some of the announcements you can expect in his MIX09 keynote. He doesn’t reveal all of the juicy bits (of course), but he does mention Silverlight 3, H.264 video, 3D support, and hardware acceleration. Oh…don’t miss Scott’s recent post about the ASP.NET MVC 1.0 Release Candidate. There’s definitely a lot of exciting stuff to talk about this year.
Also, Robert Hess, the former host of The .NET Show, has started up a new video series called The Knowledge Chamber. His first-ever episode has been posted on Channel 9, and I encourage you to spend 9 minutes checking it out: Steve Guttman – Microsoft Expression Web: No Platform Left Behind. I can’t wait to hear more of Robert’s interviews.
Finally, our MIX09 Content Owner, Michael Suesserman (the guy who is ultimately responsible for all of the sessions that are presented at MIX09) joins Jennifer and I for the latest episode of our Countdown to MIX09 show.
