I thought this candid interview with the wealthiest person on the planet was quite interesting. In this part of the interview he talks about what he does online. Interestingly, he spends some of his time using Hotmail and checking out "video sites":
"I did a review recently of all the video sites out there and it really blew my mind. I knew about a few of them but theres is dozens and dozens. The whole idea of video on the internet, which we started betting on with our Microsoft TV thing way too early over 12 years ago but now its becoming real. Whether it's delivering to the pc or through the IPTV stuff we're doing with with people like AT&T or Bell South actually to the TV set very directly. And so this idea that it's not just telephony but that it's also TV and not TV as we used know it. TV with interaction and personaliaztion without this channel concept with the total choice of what you want including the physics lecture that you're the only one who cares about or the local high school team that very few people would want to watch. It's a revolution and so I try and go to alot of those websites and get a sense of how that's changing and when will video be a big part of the experience."
