Rob Mensching on Microsoft TechNet Radio


About a month ago, I wandered over to MS Studios to have a chat with Mike Ward who hosts Microsoft TechNet Radio. Well, actually I was invited over by Mike Ward because he was looking for someone to talk to about the Open Source end of Microsoft’s Shared Source Program and Bill Hilf gave him my name.


Those of you that follow my blog and the WiX toolset regularly probably won’t hear anything new in the interview but if you’re curious, you can find the audio downloads at the TechNet site (I’ll update this link when the interview eventually moves to the archive). I can barely listen to it… it is so weird hearing my own voice.


Random fact you won’t learn anywhere else: The intro that Mike gives at the beginning of the interview was actually recorded after I left. Like you today is the first day that I’ve heard that introduction… and he used my favorite quote from Time magazine. Sweet. <smile/>

    Nice conversation! Although I would have expected Mike to have known a little bit more about WiX and open source development in general. He asks some really simple questions. Or did he just pretend to be a n00b? <smile/>

  2. It was pretty clear to me that Mike asks questions that he thinks his listeners would be interested in hearing the answers to.  Mike also did his homework to make sure he could ask the interesting questions.  It was a good time.
