Thoughts, about stuff

More things playing on my mind

Scott got in touch with me today and told me that he’s interviewing the General Manager for Windows Live platform, George Moore. He asked me if I had any questions I would put to him and, well you know me by now, of course I do!


  • How can Microsoft monetize Windows Live apart from by just throwing ads at us?
  • Why is there no Skydrive API?
  • Where is Windows Live Calendar?
  • Will Windows Live Calendar replace MSN Calendar and will I be able to migrate all my existing appointments across?
  • What is the strategy for Windows Live Spaces? Is it seen as a competitor to MySpace/Facebook or is it something else?
  • What can Windows Live Spaces do differently so as to avoid it looking like they’re just copying FaceBook?
  • If Windows Live bring out an API (any API), will it always be a Web3S API? In other words, Is Web3S going to be something Windows Live standardises on for APIs?
  • Is the priority for APIs to be RESTful or SOAP-based?
  • Will there be deals similar to the Bebo deal where users of non-Windows Live properties can interact using Windows Live properties?

I’m sure I could come up with loads more given some time.
