It Took Me Four Months But Here It Is – Thirty One Demos in Thirty Nine Minutes.


Four months ago I started a little project making a video out of a bunch of demos that I had been giving to different audiences over the second half of last year.


I finally finished the video over the holiday break and have today got it uploaded and live online.


I have updated my previous presentation link post…

    I was alerted to a post by Steve in the comments that the download link on the Group Shot site was broken… I went to http://research.microsoft.com/research/downloads/Details/b215d477-9116-4708-a543-7ca498e6c2eb/Details.aspx and discovered that the The Group Shot Beta period has in fact expired (It was started in Sep 2006).

    From the team site…

    "We are currently considering several options to bring Group Shot back. Please stay tuned to this site for information on future releases."

    I then tried the installed version on my machine and it too has expired… sorry all! The beta must have expired near the end of last year after a year or so in publication.
