Maria is an associate of mine who works in the Singapore has very good connections to the developers in Redmond. It looks like she’s posted some information about some satellite technology we’ve been working on quietly for the past few years.
I didn’t realize any of this was ready for public announcement, but Maria has more of the details on her blog. For me it seems that the new Microsoft Rally technology will be used by the satellites to find each other and determine what other satellites are closest by and they will share the workload together. Kind of a HPC for the Universe ;-).
The idea of having my video camera link to my wife’s cell phone – all from 1000 miles away – is really stunning.
