CNET ran a nice interview with Will Poole today. It was based on a series of meetings we did down in the Bay Area a few weeks ago. Will is one of the VPs who runs the Unlimited Potential Group here at Microsoft.
The interview includes a video clip of our MultiPoint technology, which is designed to let multiple kids share a computer in a classroom setting for schools that cannot afford a single PC for every student.
He also landed a nice quote that summarizes so much of our approach to doing incubations with local partners around the world:
