Thoughts, about stuff

Mesh application startups in Boston

leave a comment »

An interesting little titbit of Mesh news here. Microspotting has interviewed Reed Sturvenant who heads up Microsoft Startup labs in Boston. Here’s what the group do (taken from the interview)

The idea is to create an internal, Boston-based development group that can build products and launch them to market the same way that start-ups do.

What is of most interest to me though is this quote:

We’ve been asked to focus on two things: products that will attract a large enthusiastic audience, and to help drive new strategic platforms. So for example we’re using the Live Mesh SDK and building a set of applications on top of that.

So Microsoft are setting up a Silicon-Valley-esque enclave in Boston with the express purposes of building applications for Mesh. Can’t wait to see what they come up with.
